Dont want to sound rude, but has any of these actually been built and are real?
Only reason for asking is I see a lot of computer generated images on other forums but little comes to market.

Looks a nice sleek machine.... very interested

That might be the same person as Oliver Lehtonen. He is a Finish guy that rode the HPV Ristretto for a while. He has been studying in the UK and I heard rumours that he was making HPVs himself. I know he had ties with Damjan and Russo, so if any of their work rubbed off on Oliver the Avus machine should be fast.

I'm picking up a certain tandem end of the month and may be able to borrow from time to time after that, if all goes to plan. would it be of interest?

Is there any chance of getting this machine racing at the bhpc races? It'd be a shame if it just became a museum piece...
(and yes that is a thoroughly blatant attempt to blag a seat in the first race it competes in...) :)

It's single speed and only has one brake which doesn't really work... So it would only be any good on a flat circuit without any other machines in the way... Goodwood would probably work well... Wink
