Two Wheel HSV!!!

Excerpt from Daily Telegraph 4/7/01:

"A cut price Holden is being released. The new model costs just $2,750 and the first service is for free. But it has only two wheels one seat and no engine."

The HSV/HRT Mountain Bike comes with Shimano 27-speed gears, disc brakes, alloy hubs and pedals.

Well fellow forum members:

Is this Holdens last ditch effort to secure the V8Supercar Championship?.

Will they be able to Homologate 500 before October to ensure they can run this new model at Bathurst?.

There is no mention of running a ford 9 inch diff in this new model!.

Will Mr Skaife ride it with or without the seat?.

However I am told it has plenty of HSV logos on it.

Nar Nar Nar Nar Nar Na Naar Nar Thunder!!!!

Nipper.......

I've seen the bike and it looks not bad but it has too many stickers on it.

Re: Two Wheel HSV!!!

Will Corsa release a version costing $500 more, which includes coloured coded hubs and handle-bar tassles?

Will the public find out about the internal document admitting two extra links were mistakenly added to the chain, causing problems at high pedal rotation, and that these links were NOT to be removed during the first free service?

How many owners will add the football-card mod to make the cycle note sound more appealing?

What will owners do when they find out the top 6 gears are all but useless, and it may as well have been a 21-speed?

I have one question.........
how are the owners going to wear their caps backwards???

looks like the governments helmet laws are going to rob them of an extra 20rwkw's. LOL

p.s. if they do decide to run them next season in the v8 series, does Skaife have an aerodynamic advantage over the field due to his huge nose?

It's open source to the Ford community. :D The Holden community may use it, but the license fees are very high.
