village: Nolan already made one. But for racing, a two-speed it totally unnecessary, even against a low-turn brushless electric bike, trust me.

Here's the green R30FS that has not been run. It has the two-speed installed.

I might be putting it on eBay I need funding for the production run.

Jay Leno are you listening?

I would supply with single speed and spares of course.

Burning the midnight oil.......... The Micro Spur drive Proto's are done. The coutersprocket is in 4130 steel and will be hardened along with the flywheel/drive gears.

This is Stubby's bike that I have one spare fuel tank for. I have most of the parts needed so I am going to try to get both bikes updated soon to test the changes.

He's pretty excited I think

Excited is an understatement.

Ordered motor, carb, clutch, shoes, will send tires, wheels, forks, servos, bearings, and all else.

Stubby was first on my list so I am getting the first new prototype done for him to test at the worlds. Thankyou Steven! Before breaking off onto one I made qtys of some 7075 parts including the swingarms and got the frame bending down.
It is good to go through the design one more time on his bike to insure a good product.

Love your bike Nolan, I've been a silent admirer of it ever since you first posted pics of it. Stubby is a lucky man getting to race it at the worlds, and I guess I'm lucky I'll get to see it in person..

See you in Germany Stubby..

Shaun

Getting Closer

I wish I could go, though I am glad someone who is familar with the bike is going. I thought I would have to wait until next year.

We have transmission!

She gets Aleven wheels, forks, brakes, rider and chain drive.

Well, I will be at the worlds and I will have the bike. I will pay the entrance fee and heaven only knows if I will be racing with it.

Nolan says it is easy to start and runs reliably, if that is the case, I will at least be running the qualifiers and hopefully I will be fast enough to make it to the mains.

We will now have a moment of silence to pray.
