I've had my head down recently, trying to finish some of those projects - the ones that just seem to go on and on! This is one of them - my Red Bull Desert Racer!
She's been a real labour of love and has taken a lot more of my time than I originally thought it would, but hey, 'specials' are like that - I should know better by now!
I'd like to extend a big 'thank-you', especially to Rad22Rad, Twinset, Huffmeister and Cultech, without you chaps making superb parts for these old SRBs, projects like this simply wouldn't be possible, so thank you chaps!
I'm now really looking forward to getting some sand under her tyres! ;-)
Comments always welcome.

@ tuffbug: No, it was just one blitzer beetle body... originally.

Still after all the years since your Scorcher has been listed >chef_bikes<, it still is one of the nicest looking examples on TC. Practical and Outstanding Workmanship!
