    Summer Build Off?

    Summer build off? I wasn't going to,..... But........ I have had an idea..... And I have just sold the Streamliner, so I have room, and budget...... Do I have the time? Maybe I could do a quick turn around group 1 bike, I mean, that shouldn't escalate into a full custom build should...

    Ha ha thanks, It is plaque-ish....... ish When the Mrs got home last night she noticed it straight away.... "whats that at the end of the garden????" Busted already! I thought it would go unnoticed a least a few days! Lol

    Summer build off prize

    Last summer my Streamliner bicycle won the group 2 build off. I was really stoked by the response it got. It's my understanding that the winner builds the prize for the following year. I've put some thought to this. I love making stuff, especially if it's a bit weird! However the chances are...

    The Streamliner - thanks for the votes

    I checked first that my idea for a Streamliner would be welcome. I'm very aware it's not "rat" which is why I asked first. If it puts your mind at rest, I didn't get time to paint the frame so it is a little "ratty" under the skin :) As for a a riding video using the pedals, I can do this...

    I found the original sketch I'd did right at the beginning. It's not too far off....

    The Streamliner

    We were having a go at high speed runs to see what the motor could do. The motor can be used independently to the pedals, off road only of course! We took it in turns to ride round the car show. I don't think either of us used the pedals at all! Lol

    The Streamliner

    Yes it can be pedalled. It is a standard bicycle under the panels.

    Ah, that's a shame. As people have said, please keep us up to date with the build. I was very much looking forward to seeing this finished

    I really can't wait to see this put together! I don't mind admitting that, at this stage, I have no idea how the items in those photos will become a bicycle!

    My brother. The jet noise in the background was the track drier on the drag strip

    Wow thanks! There is a flip round cover on each side. One is the charge port, the other is for the main key switch
