Eh?

The front end on that model is very sloppy while brakes give no feel at all. I'm not aware of any final drive failures, but reckon you'd spend more time pushing it then riding it. Can't imagine why anyone would want one over an oilhead and KTM's are far superior in every aspect.

I've spent parts of the last two winters putting together a R90S kit by Tamiya - trying to keep busy on crappy winter nights. Well this thing is still not finished and I could have built 3 real motorbikes with the effort that this thing has taken from me. Not for the weak hearted - I'll pass.....
