immaculately prepared scooter racer i spotted in the paddock on sunday, water-cooled, twin radiator's, massive carb, aluminium seat subframe, honda rs125 race seat, [same item i had on the mz racer], the expansion chamber was a work of art, not blown like a lot of scooter exhausts, but made up of individual sections tigged together like a moto gp bike, carbon fibre parts, [check out the rear brake lever and the foot-boards and leg-shields], the water pump bracket, rearset's and exhaust bracket stand out a mile, very nice bike, good work fella.............

  2. Interesting piece of information. I find it to be honest, useful and fresh so thanks for posting. So despite the sometimes scary news bits we read or hear about carbon fibre parts failing, the fact is their combination of light weight and high strength cannot be ignored. Already, top German carmakers are designing hybrid commuter cars that make use not just of parts but entire assemblies from carbon-fiber reinforced plastic. Like any maturing technology, the development of carbon fibre parts that are as reliable as good old steel is in the near future and we can only guess what new applications will be developed from this wonder material.
