The Pareto

For the cyclist more interested in getting out of trouble than starting it… Cycle Concepts presents the Pareto.  Smooth handling… tough… quick.  It will take you there and back again… and beyond.

PARETO.  Light cycle, large power plant, hvy. suspension, PR tires.  Armor: F 23, B 20.  HC 2; acceleration 15 mph.  Weight 797 lbs; cost $4220.

PARETO SIDECAR for above:  Hvy. sidecar; imp. suspension; PR tire.  Armor: F 5, R 5, L 5, B 5, U 5.  Mounts SS back.  One rider.  Wt. 750 lbs.; costs $1,575.  Cycle + sidecar HC 3, acceleration 10 mph.

[With the cycle, sidecar, and two sets of body armor costing $6,295, it doesn’t seem like its that cost effective to take a two person unit into a game.  Maybe if you downgrade to HD tires, downgrade the suspension, and downgrade the powerplant it can become more feasable….  Still, with just the original pocket box, you’ve only got a couple of guys with SMG’s and grenades….  Nah… I think I’ll stick to little vehicles that carry big guns.]

    Sorry but this design is illegal – only med & heavy cycles can have sidecars!

    Doh! You’re right! That rule is consistent all the way back to the pocket box days.

    Looks like I’ve got some reworking to do….
