    Cheers, I remember when the bike looked like this! Nice to create something, thanks to you. Took a ride yesterday, just to warm the thing, mental :jack

    A bit pissed off this is cancelled, so close to world domination just to sink back in to obscurity. Still, I get an automatic invite next year, but as we know a lot can happen in a year. Chances of it being mint next year are pretty remote.

    I think displaying a bike like yours, with a bit of wear and tear, beats bikes that are only built to be shown, instead of ridden.

    Roomer has it you have something to do with clean room vacuum pumps?
    The Corvallis HP clean rooms uses them and I think you need to schedule a work visit to the Pacific North West.
    I think I can set you up with a bike out here and show you around....

    So it was your bike after all! I read the article and thought "hey, that a coincidence", but not so much!
    Nice article (and bike of course)!

    A magnificent build, what a labour of love. "Well done" would be insufficient praise, it's just drop dead gorgeous!

    Customer? I can't afford to lose that much every time !!!!!
    It is another two stroke project, I challenge @busa1300 the two stroke expert to identify the ingredients, a bit early for him though. No input from @Fast Idle though as he already has a heads up....

    So if I were to guess, I’d say an early TZ frame and a Banshee or RZ engine.
