    Well, Another year has gone by...

    I am still pink and making use of air...

    I won last years "Rat-Bike-Build-Off" with a half animal/half bike creation...It serves me well, I am still riding it from time to time now, it upsets the local constabulary beautifully as of course, its street legal... This years build has been very slow in progress but I still have 6 weeks to complete it, some parts cannot be added until the very last moment for best effect...

    To qualify in this particular show the build has to be done for less than £100 (currently that would be approx $162) and be registered and street legal ... If the build comes to more than £100, supposing its say £180 then the bike has got to be capable of doing that in MPH...lol... The target price for the completed bike is £100 So everyone keeps the cost below £100 (last years total cost was £92 including the buying of a bike to start the build with) Last years find was a seized engined, busted up CBR600f, it had been laying on its side for 6 years with weeds even growing out from the carbs...lol... took just under 24 hours to get the engine working right, then another day to get the carbs cleaned and running as they should, I used a hammer to take off all the plastic panels...lol...I cut and rewelded the frame at an angle to accomodate the saddle I used for it......

    All being well this years build will be completed on schedule and under cost, I wont reveal what it is being made from or how it is being converted and set up until after the show.....

    Peace.....Jetman.....

    and if you look again you will see that there is one hanging out of the mouth too!!!

    I stuck lumps of rotting meat under the saddle, around the engine, inside the head, in fact...lol...all over the upper part of the bike...lol...EVERY FLY in the area was hanging around that bike...lol...I named it the "JUST ROT'N" ...thats all I could fit on the number plate...lol...
