Juel, Thanks, I think. I wonder if they put the engine in the rear. There are no vents or grill in the front and a diesel needs lots of air to operate. What is that canister hanging on the back left bumper?
I would love to hear the history of this creation.

Try to answer your Questions

1st.....my motorcycle is a 1995 Honda Shadow 1100 ACE, It is carried on a carrier fitted to a class 4 hitch welded to the frame rails. The carrier was custom made by RG Fabrication out of Ohio. Found them on ebay. My bikes curb weight is 575 lbs.
2nd.....I have put about 11,000 miles on my moho since aquisition in oct 02. Started in soutwestern Virginia mountains and been to Fl, Tx, SD, Mo, Fl again, Tx, Az, Nv, and back to Tx. I have moved 3 times in Tx and plan to go to Ar or Mo next summer.
3rd.....As for work (oops a four letter word) as little as possible, I am workamping at the RV Resort I am staying at for free use of the park, its amenities and all utilities, plus a pay check. During the holiday season of Thanksgiving and Christmas I wear a red suit and sit at a mall all day long.
4th..... As for swaping for a 310 or another....sure do you know of anyone that wants to trade? Any time I see a larger AS moho the owner doesnt want to go smaller .
I think that covers all the questions, if not I will try again later.

Alan, that's a cool photo. Looks like an old Dodge p/u. Makes you wonder just how much wind that nose is pushing as he goes down the road? Gotta slow you down....and likely never passes a gas station.

Tonight from Wal-Mart in Asheboro, NC

I think the air thingy is that big white thing on the top. I have no idea what the cylinder is on the bumper. Don't really know much about deisels, but seem to remember they need a dryer or breather or something like that. Tried to look up something about this maker who seems to be in Minn. from the big plaque on the back, but can find nothing about them. Mystery I guess.

Rich:

We too have a motorcycle we would like to take camping with us. We have a '82 310 Turbo Diesel. Could you please post a picture of your Shadow as a TV?
