Re: A couple of little bikes

Congratulations, and some great shots there. I recently heard about the little Skyteam bikes when I saw a bloke with an Ace 125. When I found out how cheap they were I immediately thought of running one at the salt. Are you going to run again next year?

So I'm guessing, minimise the distance between the wheels would be good whatever diff you choose. Take this to the logical end ... a motorcycle ???
