did you forget to read the article mate???  :D

They're using a CBR600RR as a donor bike... which means they'll use the engine.. then design and build everything else around it... the same thinking as in the Moto2 championship!

Very best of luck to you boys... there's a lot more to it than merely building a bike, You'll need to be obsessed with the project.. sure sounds like you're not short on enthusiasm, Hope you get there and compete!

Thanks for the support guys, hopefully we can get the funding sorted! More phonecalls to be made (will have to search for seperate sponsors to cover my phonebill this month I think!) on the list Supernoodles, thanks ducatigav

750FLYER - we're already obsessed with it, it's gonna be a 24/7 project for all of us but atleast its a project we're passionate about so I don't think the motivation is going to fade. I think other things in our lives are going to get in the way more than anything, things like eating and sleeping...but I'm sure we'll figure something out
