Got a karma 1992 552 courtesy of Mattbrown (top chap).

I have been building this up with bits and pieces over the past week or so. Today i've managed to 'bodge' up some replacement elastomers (polyurethane bushes left over from my Golf build).

Front mech, and some brakes that are a bit more in-keeping to go, and i'll fire up some pics!! 8)

Ringo - how big is the front ring on that 756? Can you actually get anywhere on it?

52 Tooth Pace on the front, 22 on the back...

It flies, absolutely perfect gearing imo... Mind you those roadie style tyres really help!

Blat along comfortably at between 18 & 20 Mph on the streets!
