I paid my deposit last year for the first tR1ke, just confirmed colours, options and specs today.
I've had the R1 donor for three months already, so I'm all set up.
I'm emptying my garage tomorrow in anticipation of the kit's arrival, which should hopefully be mid February.
I'll post as much info as possible, including how much everything costs and how long things take!
This is my first kit car, I'm thirty, with two kids and I work for the leccy board as a linesman.
I spend too much time on the internet so if I post too much please ask me to stop!
I do know how a motorbike is put together, but I'm no mechanic and can't weld or anything. Paul from Road Track Race assures me the build will be possible even for an idiot like me so this will be my little thread.
dont be rediculous... you have the first one, you probably won't be able to say enough. Anyway congrats and out of curiosity, what colors/options/specs/ did you go with? Could you give us a run-down of your build plans to date? Thanks.

I have to say I'm quite jealous of you already, although being the first means that you will be responsible for customer proofing the kit, it also means that you will be assured of having the undivided attention of both RTR and MEV, as they will be very keen to see you succeed.
My only advise is don't worry if you get stuck, there is light at the end of the tunnel, and promise me you'll enjoy the experience.
