Mini Motorbike

A motorbike built from a photograph of a model that caught my eye which was taken at a Meccano show. At the time I didn’t make a note of the builder’s name or the show and now can’t find it again to credit the show or the builder, whom I am not sure was even credited there.

My model was built from that photograph as faithfully as possible. I made one small modification to the model by substituting the solid rod the exhaust pipe with a rod-connector and a shorter rod. This gives the exhaust pipe a hollow end.

A fun little project to build but a bigger challenge than it looked at first sight. A variety of tools and ‘implements’ were used to place and hold nuts and bolts during the build.
