1/5 Hang on Rider attempt

Hey guys,

Here is the beginning of my attempt to recreating Swheels's Home made 1/5 HOR

until now i've only got the skeleton foam part done
Only pproblem i came across is my crashbars are in the way of the feet.
might have reposition the bars.

i taped it on so long to have a better perspective of what it would look like

I've heard you're very good at knitting and embroidery though.

I'm sorry it's taking me so long.I have to upload the camera software to the new computer.Then i'll be good to go.Got in late last night from racing the midbikes 110cc.I should have stayed home.

Ok i hope these pics help. I used a piece of alu.to attach the servo to the tank.I also cut out 2 holes in the body which will change the position of the rider how he sits on the bike.Plus the holes are small enough to hold the servo in a nice tight fit so you don't have to glue it. Almost forgot i cut off and used the tt rider hands and feet and simply used the tt head also.
