Hey guys!

Sorry I have been away for a while! Ive been checking in regulary though too see whats happening and reading all the posts and watching the videos of your runs

A few new pictures and a slight preview of things to come as I have now started to tackle the fully enclosed farring , 10 points to who can tell me where the hood/body is from ;)

Very early days the other picture is a quick photoshop mock but really want this completed soon so will add more pictures during its process

10 Points to radio marty! :D

Yes it is from the ice cream bike, I was at first going to mod it as it was but when I got it back to my shock without motor seat or anything else needed it weighed a heavy 90kg!! once amotor was in etc it would prob be around 100-110kg, 40kg over the legal limit So then it hit me of a even better Idea :D

Will keep you all posted with progress!

Hi Henrik

The wheel hub motor was not shelf/store bought, It was a one off custom build by a associate of mine who as of recently I have lost contact with :( I am trying to regain contact

That is one of my favourite vehicles its called a Bond bug if your intrested, made by the same people who made the robin reliant, really rare as they came out when the first mini did and cost more so hardly any are around im pretty sure its only in the low thousands, They are REALLY quick too!! But I would love to get my hands on a dead one or chassis and electric convert it ;)
