That car makes me think of this transformers toy I had as a kid, haha.Always thought this car was a little under rated, the Brabham BT52 which Nelson Piquet drove to the title in 1983.
Also, here is a diagram listed the evolution of the Brabham F1 cars.
A number of classics from an iconic F1 name.
Are they the scooters that are used to retrieve drivers of real machinery when there is a breakdown/crash?Thread bump, seeing it's been hijacked for all manner of machinery.................................
This is Jeff Leisk's 1990 factory RCM500 (West Aussie boy, now KTM Australia boss)

Dave Thorpe's 1986 factory RCM 500................... apparently a build cost to Honda to the tune of about $100k, at the time

Both the above were limited to 100 bhp and had to weigh 100kg for competition rules (usually a weight ballast was added). Hard to imagine that these blokes were good enough to use all that power.

Hey Hey Hey, these are serious (and seriously good looking) machines! An off the shelf 2T mxer has a higher power to weight ratio than any other machinery you can buy, Respect bruhs! - certainly beat one of these! LolI've never seen an attractive dirt bike, not even in a magazine......
Like I said, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I would use your Kathy Bates analogy for those tractors. I am sure there are others that may find race dirt bikes attractive Klyntonius comes to mind.I can respect and marvel at the technical side, but it's like calling Kathy Bates good looking
Those tractors though..... I do like.
Again from your perspective, tractors are also not attractive at all depending on who you are. Also fits the profile of those who find them attractive.The green one no, the red tractor is a nice looking vehicle.
Dirt bikes aren't that at all, and generally fit the profile of those who ride them.
Right I've taken this far enough.
I worry for anyone who thinks farm machinery is attractive, but it sure sucked you in
Former KTM Australia boss - he just retired!
I can kinda understand that. Dirt bikes for the most part are very much function over form. An engine, frame, suspension, handlebars and wheels with minimal plastics left for styling. Also, aesthetically dirt bikes have changed very little over the past 25-30 years. Only keen fans could really tell the difference between a 1997 model and a 2017 model. For me, I find the stripped down nature of dirt bikes can be quite attractive, particularly 2-strokes and with the right colour schemes.I've never seen an attractive dirt bike, not even in a magazine......
