At the risk of sounding totally gay... I wanna see more of the bike not her! (and the mrs is sitting behind me Wink)
Would love to see and hear it ride, looks awesome. Kind of an 80's vision of the future. Any more vids of it running?

They didn't have a clue, the set up was a joke, I had the engine stripped and inspected by someone that knows about blade turbo's and he said the set up and items used were bollox, IE cheap Chinese copy of a Garrett etc, wrong head gasket, carbs well out, the turbo was set at 13psi! enough to blow the head off, M B Customs has a biblical disclaimer on their site that means they can f**k your engine up and there is nothing you can do about it!, live and learn only 5k down the drain.



So new engine

Acid wash



Paint



Finished







And going back in chassis

His Disclaimer!

He has 4 court cases running against him at the moment.

He scratched the brand new paint work on the tail section too, when chimpy asked for a reduction in the cost she got told "up yours"

I can't fit a standard air box under the tank, the turbo plenium was much smaller so have no choice but to fit cones
