Power PDU, brute power...we had a Honda 70 cc DAX when we were kids, we "upgraded" to A Honda 90 Stepthru, we couldn't believe the power it had, it would do 60 MPH, (downhill, with the front wheel shaking so much it was hard to hang on to the handlebars) When we sold it, we literally wrote in the ad- "Honda 90 Stepthrough, brute power" and a kid bought it because he said his RM 80 wasn't powerful enough...
Cheers

Hi,

following up on a new/returning member tonight and followed a few links to find a couple of articles on old school Race Car transporters that might interest a few.

Gryphon I have never been interested in car racing but these stories are great. Keep 'em coming! They showed the transition from it being a sport or hobby into a multi-million dollar business.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
