Really like that and enjoyed the pics and story.

Some lovely touches there, I like all the engineering work that's gone into it.

I think I remember a similar design of front brake from somewhere, same principle: Was it a commercial design, or is that a hand-made one?

Its great when a bike has some history, so thanks for sharing it with us.

Here is the bikes first outing in 2007 in Cebu, Philippines on the Catmon 10 mile course.

Sorry about the poor quality of pic

It felt like a national event as so many locals turned out to see us all.

This is at the top end of the 10 mile course which is a dead turn & the bike handles suprisingly well when making a dead turn.
