the shadows of 8 time world champion builder Derbi,
comes a street versioned scoot that is now just a
slight bit modified single thumper...what started
life as a 50cc bike shod in lovely Spanish styled
body work, comes a stripped down race ready track
bike with lighter than light components (full MetraKit
Pro Race componentry with all kinds of glass fibre
around 'er) and the engine prepped by none other than
Ted Kouhalaris from Sport Cycle fame...this 15,000
rpm scoot can do, with the corrective gearing mind
you, nearly 100mph down Roebling Road's front straight,
and has a unwielding 25 plus hp at the engine pushed
from a 72cc engine (that must be properly warmed before
taking it for a flog (AND don't !?#$! ask about the
first cold seizure that required piston replacement!!!)).
For the 2004 season, I shall take 'er for a good number
of track days and a WERA and SEMRA race or three,
all the whilst praying to the grip gods that I can
steer 'er propper and keep the rubber side down...
lovely bit of go juicer indeed...
