Custom made 1/5 bikes!!! Lets see them

OK guys,
Been watching the videos of BIG RC BIKE RACES here on RC Groups...

I found that some build their own 1/5 scale bikes!!


Anyone care to share these pics??? or experience building them?? Quite unique.

I have taken a few pics of homemade bikes at the recent RC Bike Worlds.

So here they are:

You know Peter from his homemade 1/8 bike. He writes here as "Bastelpeter".

Richard Blisset's Nitro bike.

I took the pics right after a wet quaifying run, so this is why all the grim is still on the bike.

Richard also writes here as "Whitham69".

Austrian Driver's Rudi Grahamer 4-stroke nitro bike:

One interesting feature for me, (a complete ignorant when it comes to nitro bikes!) is the fuel pump on top of the chassis!

Steliosh was faster. Yeah my BP-5 was doing well at the worlds. I am currently thinking to make it public. Let' s see ...

This is the previous version of the BP-5 wit separate pivot points for the rear and the front swing. The new has both pivots in one axle.
