For motorcycles, scooters and Studebaker Champions. Will pay top dollar, or trade for JC Whitney Mini-Supercharger. Serious inquires only.

Not really sure an anti-grav device is what you're after my friend. Given that the earth is spinning around in space the centrifugal force would probably launch your ass into space like a Phantom off cat 2. What you need is magnetic boots! since the Earths core is molten iron sloshing around in there magnetic boots would allow you to skate around, basically like one of those ballerina things with the magnet in their feet that you can move around with another magnet. All's you'd need is a way to reverse the polarity so you could go up stairs and walk on wood floors.

Another bene is if you put magnets along your back and polerized them they snap in line and stand you up straight. I guess you'd need to switch polarity in one leg at a time so you could walk, never know bra, might work...

I think our friend started self-medicating recently.

Mscuddy, you hear about that kid who rode the Baja 500 recently? He cannot walk either, and modified a CFR450 with crash bars to work. I'll try and find a link.

I could levitate you, but first I'd have to obtain some liquid Nitrogen and a couple of superconducting magnets.

Oh! I'd also have to obtain Satan's Grimoire and use it to turn you into a Frog..........

Remember KP posted that link to a handicapped motorcycle, and I replied with a link to the youtube video of Ricky James in the Baja 1000 on the modified CRF450?

Yeah, I've spoken with Ricky, he's a cool guy, just another dirt biker who ate it, and paid the price. I was supposed to do an interview for Off-Road.com with Ricky (and David Bailey) about injured racers, and how they cope with paraylisys, but it kinda fell through for now. (Off-Road.com is going through staff changes, no one knows wtf is going on).

Here's the link. The kid's got balls.
