Sharp little scooter! Really nice job on the weathering.

Mmmm, C-rations. Cool, let's get this out onto a tray. Nice.

If someone were FAR too crazy, some ammo cans mounted on the sides could possibly hide some rc components

It would be great if you had the opportunity to make it into an rc unit. But my skills are not there at all.

And thank you very much for the kind words��

I wonder if the guts from one of those 1/76 RC cars could be adapted to work? Probably be a LOT easier to do a motorcycle with a sidecar though. Then you wouldn't have a balance problem to deal with. Anybody out there crazy enough to try it?

Frizzen, if you mounted the ammo cans low enough you might even be able to hide a pair of "training wheels" in them. (No balance problem.) Or maybe some big and really TALL saddle bags? Even so, as narrow as the wheel track would be the thing would probably want to lay itself over if you looked at it wrong.

There are lots of good ideas. Who has the skills and courage to try to do it?

Looks like those ww2 Cushmans could pull a small trailer (to keep it upright + carry batt rx esc) or there was a non-airdrop 3 wheel trike version.

Probably would need TTTT electronics that are used to make 1/87 scale rc trucks. DasMikro would be the cheap option without learning german

I don't know of any RC Armor groups around here, and I already made a sidecar bike that's too small (1/18). Don't think i have enough to prove to want to do one... i'm just putting bad ideas out there.

No bad ideas here, I wish I had the skills for such a project.
Got a link or pics of that bike I'd like to see??

It's way too cool... It's real craftsmanship.
Who just had those skills.

Pretty sure instead of Craftsmanship, mine was just mixing some boredom with trying to make a 'dust collector' model into an extremely light-duty toy.

(If it failed i was going to break it down and strap its parts to a pallet for my forklift to play with)

I think your Sherman would look pretty cool with a harley Messenger Dispatch bike...

Sometimes good things just come out of being bored. Agree that a WLA would look good riding next to the sherman.
I think my next project will be a Torro halftrack
