    Hello everyone my name is Marek I am 34 years old, couple of years ago I started flying RC planes but what I liked about this hobby was building them from scratch. Every since I remember I was interested in motorbikes and I would love to have a go at building one at 1/4 scale from scratch.

    Hello Marek!

    Welcome, and what kind or time of bike? I have been collecting info on several myself, Honda CB77, a Vincent Rapide, Munch Mammoth, . . .
    I assume you are familiar with Pere Tarrago, if not check him out.

    Probably the most successful motorcycle modeler, and he shares and shows so much of his work.

    Again, welcome!

    Hi Don yes I am familiar with Pere. I would like to build a board track racer similar to one in my avatar or a Flying Merkel, Cyclone but first will need to gather tons of info and technical data.
    Regards
    Marek

    OK! So we share an interest in board-track racers!

    Do you have a copy of the June 1993 issue of Motorcycle Collector? That issue has a special article about the Flying Merkel, and it has an excellent spread of pictures.

    There is a copy on ebay right now for $6.00

    Hello!

    Another motorcycle modeler, new to me but probably not you?

    Glen English? (he was also a racer). - Some very nice models, 1/4th scale, completely from scratch, made in limited runs for sale.
