Cool. I used to see similar homemade "railcars" running through the Carrizo Gorge back in the late '70s and early '80s. However, those usually were powered by a lawnmower or go-cart engine.

My brother and I nearly got knocked off a trestle one evening when someone came zipping up the track at dusk, with no lights. There was no muffler on it, so the riders couldn't hear us yelling.

Si-I have a 1:35 kit for a WLA and I have 2 foot gauge trackage. Also, a set of Grandt O scale WSLCO curly spoke speeder wheels and chain drive. What am I thinking???

HELL'S ANGELS ... ON FLANGES !!!


The 1:35 WLA's look nice...
...both Tamiya & MiniArt.

I see Mirror Models Ltd do a 1:35 Indian as well.

It would have to be static, even in 1:35; wouldn't it ?? ...
...tenny-weeny drive unit needed.

The Tamiya WLA looks pretty sturdy...
...the MiniArt one; looks like Swiss-watch time !!

Darn BIKE-FREAKS !!

Si.
