Riders are happy.... But...

With the chassis placed in the fairing we were able to get an idea of what the view will be like. Also were able to place our riders in so that we can get their feedback and adjust the position of the chassis if we need to before securing it to the fairing.

We have ordered our new front wheels, axles and front brakes which will be fitted later on. To help us add our new components to our vehicle, Tim Corbett from the Deakin University team will be coming down from Victoria to help us throught the process. Also Tim will be taking on the task of shortening the lenght of our vehicle boom. We believe that at the moment; with cranks and pedals attached, a riders feet will kick the front windshield out.

Hmm.. a problem that will have to be sorted out soon i guess. The progress of this rebuild is great so far and i hope to have the chassis on the road and being used for training in roughly two months time.

Stay tuned for more updates as they happen.

Thank you,

THOS Racing
