      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

Nice work. I have no doubt it will inspire some future builds. The wire wheels look great.

Wow that is an impressive build as always from your bench! I just went through the whole WIP-thread and again, words aren't enough to describe how beautiful this bike is. Old Drag Bikes are seen way too rarely, and even though I'm not exactly a bike guy myself (Even though I like old Drag Bikes and old school style Bobbers), I'd like to build one of these too. It's just too bad that these kits are so hard to find... Anyway, fantastic work! That Alclad on the engine looks very realistic, and it even has fuel inside the transparent fuel line!!:blink:

Absolutely perfect in every way-I also have this bike to build-this inspires me to get it started.

Absolutely beautiful! All the more reason I wish Revell would reissue some of their old cycle kits. Licensing aside I believe there are some other reasons they may not be able to be done.

It could as well pass for a real bike if there was no size references in the background. Absolutely stunning.
