@  Th3Guardian : (23 July 2016 - 03:55 PM) Wondering if anyone has a performance exhaust for a 451 in Ontario
@  BabyBenz : (23 July 2016 - 03:03 PM) Shuanghuan Noble
@  BabyBenz : (23 July 2016 - 03:02 PM) Came across an interesting article about a Chinese auto manufacturer that cloned the Smart Fortwo - was sued for copyright infringement but the suit failed. 
@  smartzuuk : (21 July 2016 - 11:20 AM) no bites yet on the canada1.... it's still at 98,xxx kms with brand new tires and if someone is interested, let me know.... because if the Volvo goes first, the smart will come off the chopping block
@  Nigel : (19 July 2016 - 03:45 PM) Talk to Glenn smart142. I know he has been in contact with another welder about repairing stock mufflers.
@  Mike T : (19 July 2016 - 01:21 PM) Does Eddy in BC have a decent used one?
@  BabyBenz : (19 July 2016 - 12:44 PM) Trying to decide whether to pull the trigger on expensive muffler replacement at Mercedes or try and have an exhaust shop make a hopefully cheaper custom replacement.
@  Henry : (14 July 2016 - 03:13 PM) Carrot river is in north east Saskatchewan.
@  Henry : (14 July 2016 - 03:12 PM) Ya the cruise helps a lot. i have taken my smart as far east as Carrot river and as far south as palm springs. Quite comfy for the driver but the passenger doesn't get a reclining seat.
@  Mike T : (14 July 2016 - 06:29 AM) Yup. Top tip: Get cruise control, if you don't already have it.
@  Surturiel : (14 July 2016 - 06:09 AM) hmmm... So, just the usual (change oil, check everything), cram the car full of junk and head for 8 days of road?
@  smartzuuk : (14 July 2016 - 04:47 AM) It won't change things enough to matter... I've driven all the way from BC to Labrador and return on the stock wheels and tires....
@  Surturiel : (13 July 2016 - 11:48 PM) Should I put on wider wheels for the trip? would that make it more bearable? (roadster steelies+conti procontacts)
@  Mike T : (13 July 2016 - 06:18 PM) No problem. I did Toronto to Vancouver Island in 4 days!
@  Surturiel : (13 July 2016 - 05:01 PM) question: I *might* move from Vancouver to Halifax, and was thinking about driving all the way there with my 450. Stupid or REALLY stupid idea?
@  Surturiel : (13 July 2016 - 05:00 PM) hey, everyone
@  Mike T : (11 July 2016 - 08:10 PM) me too
@  dmoonen : (11 July 2016 - 04:59 PM) So I've totally missed updating my bike totals haha

It's the one I've been waiting for and it's right here in front of me but ... oh well ... I simply cannot justify the expenditure right now. They don't make this one anymore! On offer is an immaculate, very lightly used folding tent trailer. Complete with tonneau weather cover, screened "add-a-room" and front stowage bin..

Specs: "Original Cycle Model"
base weight: 230lb / 105kg
trailer size: /closed - 48"x66"/open - 48"x132"
Bed size: 48"x81"
Tires: 4.8x8
Hitch: 1-7/8 ball
Wiring: 4-flat plug
Headroom: 6'4"
Bed length: 6'9"
Storage: 26cu.ft.
Tongue weight: 23lbs!!!

OK, you lucky so-and-so, you... This is your unique chance to get hold of an outstanding, roomy, comfortable and well-made camping kit for your smart car. Made by Penticton, BC's Leesure-Lite you can see a video HERE [The tent material on this one is burgundy instead of green like the one in the vid.]

I was thinking I might buy it and when I'm not using it, rent it to smart and biker friends... :dunno: I mean, I want it - it's the one I've been searching for for 2 years - but... :penniless:

Hey, throw me fuel expenses and a grilled cheese sandwich, and I'll even deliver it to you in AB or BC!

Oh and... it's in an RV dealer showroom and won't last. Add applicable taxes... But maybe he can be dickered down on the price...

Bil :sun:

Addendum: I forgot to mention this unit is at Country RV, Kelowna. Talk to Al Martin and tell him Bil the smart car guy sent you.

Only in my dreams, Steve :) The RV place must have taken it in part trade for big -class or something. The sign on it says 2999 but you know they probably gave squat for it so... maybe a cash lowball would take it

All it needs now is a sink, ;) it does look really nice though.BTW Bil, I may have a guy interested in all my trailer stuff I never got to make,most of it never even got unpacked. We will see if it sells.I think you and I are looking for the same sort of trailer now for our smarts, but we are also a little strapped <_<

I was surprised to see in the video that the little girl rides in the closed-up trailer. I guess that's to demonstrate how safe and strong the unit is. :o :) :icon_wink:

No that is the way to take the kids camping, Cam. The smart (or a bike) only has two seats so you pack the kids in the trailer.

Man, I am jonesing on this wee camping kit!
