Doesn't look like a minus at all to me. Looks like a fibreglass shell made for just that purpose. Doesn't look like it's been cut out from a minus shell? Plus it looks quite new :dontgetit:

Anyhoo looks like a very good start for something that will be a lot of fun!!! :rolleyes:

You planning on trying to make this road legal? Will be interested to see how all the SVA goes.

all Iam saying is this shell looks to be a minus shell!it looks very much like the other shell i have incluing some features like the height has been lost from the doors!will compare it to the other at the weekend! and post some pics!ps the rear arches are removable and it has mk1 light apertures under them like a minus would of have!

if they can get that thing they made on scrappy racers through the sva i can get this through!in any case i think i seen a chassis number on it while i was taking it out the van!so iam going to investigate that!also i know all the rules for the sva as i work as an mot tester and i have a lot of info i can use to help me get it up to scratch.

It does look like it could have been copied from a minus. Looking at the ebay pics there seems a lot of framework in the back where most bike engines have been mounted. Are you making it front engined?

Slightly off topic but the fibreglass doors you put pics of in the other thread, did you make them yourself or buy them from someone. They look very similar in build to the ones I got from a guy called Dave last week.

LMOA :rolleyes: still think your better with Honda power!

Back to an earlyer post, if i can get 140mph on a 600cc bandit you should easly get 180 with a few tweeks no problem.

I'll even test pilot it if u want! :-
