It's done! Nice little project too. I created decals and printed them on an inkjet with alittle help from a club member. YOU ROCK DON!
Still have to paint the rider yet, have full suit decals for him too.

OK, here it is in a nutshell...
Heller 1/25 Suzuki 500 kit, raked headtube to lower ft end
left out rr swingarm, attached chunk of funnycar cockpit frame
stretched and re-shaped rear tire/seat cowling
Nascar slick, parts box tranny and electronics
scratchbuilt brass wheeliebars
designed own decals and had printed on ink-jet
any ?s....

Very cool. Excellent work. I am actually working on the same type of project using the same kit as a base. I am converting mine into the Winston Angelle Sampey bike from 2000.

i HATE being a pain in the a$$, to point out "wrongs", but i did see that
theres a michelin logo on the front, but the (atleast the rear) tire is goodyear.
The front tyre is michelin, and the reartyre is goodyear??

please do ignore me if im too much a smartass wiseguy.

Point - Jaffa

Counter point - steamboy

"good eye", although, if you break it down, the ft tire is a Michelin and the rear is a Goodyear slick. Would a "real" team bike run such a combo? I dunno... I claim artistic freedom of equipment and ignorance on real bike tech stuff. What you don't see is the carbon rr wheel which is out of a Porsche 956 kit. Hardly accurate, but it worked!
