Mrs. hobot, Alicia, eagerly booted my Mz Peel out the front door but on IT's return she swore was last time ever helping IT back in... hm implies mow allowed only at my own risk. i wonder, did Alicia push back going through tight fit doorway as I lifted turned fork to clear threshold so the RedNeck Chopper blade brake line support impaled inner leg to 2nd spike just above knee. Helps remind me one can never be thoughtless on tractors, two wheels or two people... I best not mention image of new bride carried over thresholds...
Kurt - going by separate weighed major assemblies as seen on trailer its ~330 lb with the battery so far. If complying to vintage race rules w/o Drouin and its anti-detonation fluid spray system, no alternator or kick lever and side stand - subtract ~50+ lbs. 2-1-mega exht system + hanger weighs ~10 lb. IS fiber tank w cap <7 lb. Push cafe-ish seat = 7.8 lb.
Peel greeting me at front door now. Tank mounts shifte ~3/4" to rear for filler access but removed seat gap too which also removed a few more oz's by sawing drilling.
Fork bumper wheel set to clear IS tank at 30* with almost 15* more on tap by smaller tank to rub in the fact all's ya all just don't yet know what ya missing out w/o watt's like tri-links inticing into hi speed straight steering that only likes of Peel and THE Gravel reveals what really steers a cycle and wonders of the dual hinge of stem/axle active geometry... To let Peels' hair out beyond elite corner cripples or recover THE Gravel snatches requires pulling the pin out steering dampener which i abhor but like its UFO gizmo looks and some events require them.
