Project Up-Cycle Part 1-ish (planning)


Well Im about to get busy busy busy!!!!!! Santas sleigh motorcycle? Horse drawn Santas sleigh carriage ? Does anybody buy horse drawn carriages anymore? DELIVERING PRESENTS TO NEEDY CHILDREN DRESSED LIKE SANTA?
PROJECT SANTA SUIT?!?!? BUSY BUSY BUSY!!!!!!



The bike is going to have three attachment points to the Up-cycle fairing. Before construction of the fairing, I could Build a "Santas sleigh" cutout and affix it to the frame so that I could ride around in santa's sleigh, dressed up in a Santa suit...how cool would that be? I would put a donation bucket in the back that says what I am doing so people can donate to help fund Christmas for the underprivileged.

Now, If I could get a hold of a small trailer axle, that would be beautiful. I would use the attachment points to build a three wheeled sleigh, so that I could take on a passenger (child or a parent) I would rig up several 12v deep cycle car batteries to power a hot cocoa maker and a cookie warmer, perhaps have an air traffic control radio so Santa can talk to pilots when he is flying. It would be a wicked awesome Santas sleigh.

The way I see it, Santa is one thousand seven hundred and forty-two years old (as of 2012, born 270), his reindeer are actually horses and they are approximately the same age, so flying from house to house is out of the question. The horses are just too old to fly so much. So Santa will land in a neighborhood and unleash the horses, they will walk about in the childrens yards eating the food the children left out. If the bag is small enough Santa can just walk through the neighborhood delivering presents. But for larger deliveries, an elf accompanies him to drive the sleigh while santa hops out at every house and delivers presents.

Anyway I am off the point. The sleigh needs to comfortable enough to deliver presents to around two BILLION children each year. so you would want modern day amenities like a hot cocoa maker or a cookie warmer to keep the fresh baked cookies warm that Mrs. Clause baked for me.

What else should modern Santas sleigh have?

This ties in to the Up-Cycle build because eventually I am going to need to build a side car attachment to support the batteries when I convert the bike to electric. When Christmas is over I can take the sleigh cover off and replace it with a streamliner fairing so I can ride the bike around and not blow Santas cover.

What do you think? Good idea?
