Wow, that is a serious case of form over function.

 

I also will be looking forward to watching this build evolve.

I can wait to see this one! Another terrific build coming from your bench, John. That 1:1 bike looks very wild, I wish I could see someone really driving it. It can't be that easy anyway. :)

 

And thanks for posting a link to this thread in your other WIP thread. Otherwise I might have seen this one the first time in Under Glass. :lol:

Hang on tight ! This is gonna be a wild one. How do you find time to do all this and act too ? I'm guessing that was an April Fool's Joke.

As with all your builds, I'll be checking daily anticipating your next post.

 

regards,

Jimmy
