Yeah, somewhere on here in one of the Ricky threads is a discussion of filling in the area around those sprocket mounting standoffs to make things stronger. Use something like epoxy or JB Weld maybe... You can also drill those holes completely through the plastic and then use longer 3mm bolts with nuts to hold the sprocket on.

Watching these videos again reminds me of how much fun I had with my Ricky's.... Anyone still into these Bikes? I think it is still the most realistic bike out there!

I recently met a toy designer who was part of making the Ricky bikes back in the day... random.
