just click on the play button, working ok for me, first run he did, in top gear from low revs to 10k only did 40 bhp, but second run through the gears was where it made the 50bhp when it had cleared its throat a bit.

I have just sat here and read all 17 pages of this build. I am in absolute awe of your talents mate, I've been building scooters over 30 years now and I am still not even anywhere near your league. You have produced one of the best scooters I have ever seen in my life, and after this long, I aint that easily impressed. You took this build to the limit, kicked the gates in, and then took it even further past that.

In retrospect what have you learned from this build ?? For example If a millionaire said "build me one Steve - money no issue" would you go about it in the same manner or would you push the envelope even further given the knowledge you've gained and the lessons learned from building and refining the beast ??

thanks for those kind words, very nice of you, it took 18 months to build, and its been on the road a year, ive learnt a lot, and some things the hard way, any one off custom machine is going to be an evolution, things will be altered, upgraded, as you go along, theres still some things i will improve as time goes by, yes if i was building from scratch i would do things slightly different, but i would want it to look the same.i would probably use a banshee engine if i built another and fit an athena kit and stroke it to make 421cc for a bit more torque.
cheers,
holty
