|The engine looks the part!|
These sets featured zinc/red/yellow parts and although some of the new plastic parts were appearing for the first time, there were still some brass parts included. The tyres, to fit 1½ inch pulleys, are of a design I had not seen before and look more like motorcycle tyres. Dated 1993, I guess they must have been new parts at the time.

|The bike from the otherside|
The build was easy although a bit fiddly in places. I was impressed with the engine, it makes up easily and really looks like a motorcycle engine. As I have said before, I know nothing about bikes, I just like the look of them. However, I am not at all sure about the spring arrangement for the front forks - is there a prototype that has springs at the top like they are arranged on this model?
Overall, I was pleased with the way this bike went together and the finished model is solid, looks the part and I enjoyed building it.
