MORE COLOR PHOTOS BELOW!
I am happy to report that the "MACH
III DRAG BIKE" survived, in excellent condition, after being in storage
for over 30 years. A little dusting was all that was done to this, 30+ year
old, model when it was unpacked.
This article was in the April 1972 issue
of Car Model Magazine, in it I showed how to scratch build a Custom Drag
Racing Frame, to convert Revell's Mach III Street/Drag Bike, into a Serious
Drag Racer! Along with the Custom Racing Frame came several modifications
to the stock parts like, Shaving the front tire tread, Shortening the forks,
Adding a front wheel disc and the Addition of many new details and parts.
These are new photos of the original 1972
"MACH III DRAG BIKE" 8th scale model.
