Wide Boy

It all fits together, which is a big relief. There's every reason why it should, the parts are faithful to the CAD data and everything fitted on screen but, given the huge amount of work to get this far, bolting moulded parts together is a nerve racking process.

Time to change the tiny wheels for something a bit more suitable then back to the paint shop.

Mean Machine

It's been a long time coming and a challenge to manufacture but, finally, it's here. The CAD model promised something special but it didn't prepare us for the real thing. We think it has a certain presence. It fits perfectly and is amazingly stiff and light. Just a few more bits to bolt on then it's back to the paint shop.
