most people who want fast over here go with big bikes "the english think a hundred miles is is a long distance and the americans think a hundred years is a long time"
Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

We don't have the restrictions in England that some of these guys have in certain states, look how hard it is for some of the American lads on drag.com to get their scoots registered where they live.

hey James (and all you other brit riders) Welcome aboard! there's a guy who makes an 86cc kit for minarelli mopeds by the name of federico berkelaar. I've seen video where they were doing quarter miles on those bikes that had to be in the 15 second range. not nearly as you guys with big 172cc mills but still impressive and yeah like Cyberian said about those vids, holy shit fella!

Hey James i tried to order parts from psn for my dragster but the website is down, i do know that David from tobatech racing owns the 1/4 mi. record 6 yrs straight on a 114cc non nos honda dio 9.88 then the NHRA banned us for tire rating speed.
