    Attempting a challenge, such as these "day dreams," would require the use of a much stronger drive wheel than we usually use on a motorized bicycle. It would, least a motorcycle hub laced to a better quality bike rim. Even a smallish 4 puts-out a lot of power, especially torque.

    The Rapido is a 125 Aermacchi from quick research. I hope you haven't got long legs if you decide to ride it.

    Just a few photos I came across. The first one pertains to my living in Vermont and making something that might work in snow.

    The rest, well.. I do work at a railroad. That is where I build and keep my bikes so I've been asked more then once....When? My answer "When I finish building it in my head I'll start it in metal.

    The second pic will be of a Walter Moore designed NSU500. If there seems to be a similarity to the original Norton International, it is a coincidence generated by Walter Moore designing that first.
