Re: Project: 500GP

Well it looks like I haven't been working on the bike, and well yes that is correct. However in my defence I have had a reasonable reason that will all become clear in a later update. In summary...

Re: Just add lightness

Depends on what you class as "massive hp gains", what you want from your bike, and how much money you want to spend?
