NOt completely stupid...

Hejira did make several carbon frames as early as mid 80's for Rotax singles I think. And there was a copy of a ZZR600 frame made in carbon to accept a ZXR400 engine, and this was done at a amateur level.

So its possible. The know how is a book away. The materials are easily available from Internetland. Only problem is making it not fall to pieces in the sticky death stylee.

The above picture is best captioned; You can't buy style.
