Nice!,... Is the tank/seat from the Maisto or the Scalextric?

The SCX rider looks SO much more scale than the Kyosho

Your bike looks REALLY good.., one of the two best conversions I've seen so far.... The other is the yellow Ducati:

No Problem....

Did you have to trim some material to save weight, or did you just modify it and mount it

With the hull maisto the bike is moving well, you just reduce the gas tank, it is aluminum

I would put pictures

How do you make them so quickly and easily (it seems )? I thought you needed to make a mold of some sort which is usually out of clay or CNC machine. The rider is unbelievable! I didn't realize you could get those shapes out of lexan if you're using a vacuform.

giving publicity to rc bikes wherever we want!
In the last issue of the Greek (real!) motorcycle magazine I ran a small news article on the bike!

I also had my reports from the Warm Up and the October race at Riccione, in the same issue... See the RC Bike Worlds thread!
