Baby steps

Way back in 1997 I was in Holbeach ATC, the year before I'd been up to Horncastle to see the first Youth Bike competition and decided that it would be a good thing to enter. My RM80 big wheel became the donor bike.
Stripped, cleaned and aerosol painted with a ford electric blue (I think) and fluoro yellow. Subframe cut and jacked up and brazed together.
This isn't quite the final version that went to the show, as we put a headlamp on it.
We won first prize 'Most Zany', second place 'Under 125cc' and another that I can't remember.
Good times.
