    What's worse is that the teflon sliders must be worn, I don't think I can get them from Suzuki, so, off to the Lathe!! They did last two years, which isn't too bad. :)

    Maybe you can try your hand at Streethawk next.

    That was a dirt bike with a lot of cheap plastic attached, these bikes came from space, and really flew!! :)

    Just checked the configuration. Really nice bike. I'll keep it in mind. What about the Highwayman truck?

    I remember StreetHawk and Highwayman. Both short lived but cool shows. Didn't they have more than one futuristic truck in Highwayman?

    Yeah, right! It's been so long since I saw the show, I almost forgot.

    Hi, BF! :wave: Thank you for your comment. I'll think about it! However, my todo list is fairly long and I have to complete some other projects before I could turn to Streethawk. :wave:

    Hello, fans!

    Here I give you the latest news on the Turbocycle. I have revised the curvature on the main frame and added some details like the engines and the exhaust pipe. The overall shape looks fairly good and should be an easy build, so I think this will be the final one. The first grip was rejected because I noticed too late that the grip I used as a model was shown upside down so that the result didn't fit. I'm now making a new one and try to incorporate the parallelogram which enables you to turn the wheel. I hope it will work at this scale. Stay tuned! :wave:

    The CGI looks really good. It looks like it will be a fun build.
    I am looking forward to trying my hand at it.

    I only hope I'll be able to flesh out that handle. It's pretty tricky.
