Thanks Dan :banana-dance:

The mini Mad Max bike was actually an old Harley 250 dirt bike (my friend trashed the motor!) modified to take a Yamaha 80cc motor from a step thru which is almost identical to the Honda 50.

The paintwork was done by me and featured Celtic designs in pink over a metallic purple base (well I did build it for a little girl!!!). The bike was called "KB" because it was Katie's bike...... :dance: :auto-dirtbike:

The motor featured high compression pistons and trick cams so it tended to "breathe" a little heavily on occasions. So we fitted a beer can as an oil mist catch tank... :shifty:
