Hi Chuck

I went and had a good look around his site. Lots of nice scale and full size engines of all flavours. I liked his comment about the 2 wheeler and I Quote

"This was built as a fun machine for going round shows. Its top speed was around 20 mph. I fell out of love with it when I got a flat front tyre at full speed !! I wrote my name in six languages before going over the bars ! I sold it to a man up north."  :lol: :lol:

Thanks for showing the link Chuck.  :D

Cheers  :beer:

Reg lives just around the corner from me and my wife also plays bowls with his wife. He is a great bloke, he helped me out when I was young, trying to modify RC gas cars that were not available back then. He has been into those engines for as long as I can remember. I remember 25 years ago he had 2 atc 70 trikes that he had converted to front suspension and disc brake's, way ahead of time, for those days. Reg always seems to be modifying something.
