Jeffstuff yes I intend to enclose it. I've put about 125 km,s on it without a body so any issue's could be identified and addressed. Fortunately no real pressing issues came up. One thing though, the donor bikes were CHEAP and so all 3 wheels have been taken to a local bike shop to get lubed, adjusted and have the spokes properly tensioned. I have already got the lexan for the front and back windows and pretty much settled on a body style. Nothing too fancy, just a variation of the organic elf style. I,ve tried yellow and white coroplast this time I'm thinking maybe blue.
