Seriously, stop it, once I've sorted my daily I want a 7-a-like for a toy and after the M3 it makes me look like some creepy perv who's copying your choices :D

I've only passengered in it so far, but, yeah it's nippy. It's just an event tho, not just speed. It's crazy loud, stupidly raw as you'd imagine, and handles like it's on rails. He brought it round for me earlier as I need to sort insurance yet.

Haha do it :smile:

Looks cool, like a safe motorbike. Do you wear a helmet for road use or is that OTT?
I will be wearing a helmet once the windscreen is removed and I've fitted an aero screen. I don't fancy a stone chip to the face :smile:



Right so spec wise....
Built in 2012 using brand new parts, including engine and all running gear. Think he said the box and diff were fully refurbished rather than new new.
2.0 zetec running throttle bodies approx 170bhp
It's done 2k miles since new
MT75 box with quick shift
LSD
Different sump and uprated oil pump
Modified cooling system
Gaz suspension
15" wheels with Yoko prada2s
2 seats
Steering wheel


The guy I had it from built it, and he's done an incredible job. It flew thru the IVA first time no issues and you can see why. Cost him 16k all in to build. 71 year old bloke who had this and seriously cool vintage racing bikes along side it in his garage

There's quite a few changes I want to make ready for next summer. Too much red in the interior department, so that needs sorting

Larger roll cage

Windscreen replaced for aeroscreen

Tidy up some trim bits

Maybe look at some nicer looking headlights with DRLs

A nicer set of wheels

Some bigger front brakes as it's running standard Sierra calipers

Then the major one is a colour change I think. I'm not overly keen on the polished stainless steel body so I may have it wrapped



I'll get some decent pics eventually but I doubt it'll be out untill next spring now

Wanna buy it? I'll do you the bargain price of 9k? :)
I look stupid enough without being seen driving this. I bet it's awsome though mate and a proper giggle.

You could do the bits you want to it and drive it for a year or more and still get your money back if not a profit if sold in the spring.

Would love to build one of these. That's a bit of a monster for the money too! Plenty of tuning potential in the engine still too.

Not too keen on the shiny body work but, once you sort that, it will be ace!

Yeah there's potential for near on 200bhp I rekkon

Ordinarily I'd be the same, but you can get away with it on a 7. Wings need to go, agreed.
What ya rekkon wing wise?

Black would definitely be your safest bet. That should look fine.

However I'd still be tempted to go crazy. Or how about red to match the interior?

I'd love something like this but it would literally never be used. Just sat on my drive waiting for me to buy things it didn't need.

How long before you can actually fit in it?
