    I'd go with the rack mount too - considering that would not cause any problems with the integrity of the frame which would have to be the primary consideration here.

    Its also a problem regarding engine power - what works fine as a flex suspension from the frame at 15mph and no vibration - may not be as happy at twice that speed with 8000rpm of vibration buzzing through it...

    Lovely machine though :)

    I want one with nice marquetry along the frame bar... then again - it could be worse - I know girlfriends who would want it painted pink.. lol

    Gee Bill, "electric woody" sounds a little bit nasty.
