Michael Bateman's CB160 - (aka - "the Kid Bundy Bike")

I took this bike over from Tim Fowler who took it over from "Kid Bundy."   It's been one of the Group W Racing research and development mules ever since.

Here's a little more on what I've done to my bike -

Mark Etheridge's CB160 aka "The White Bike"

Formerly an official Group W Racing Rent-A-Racer, now being campaigned by Team Ika/Group W Racing rider Mark Etheridge.   Mark made fantastic progress this season, finishing 5th in the WMRRA season championship.

Dan Hill and his bike.   Dan had so many problems with his bike this season it earned the moniker "Lemon Bike."   He persevered anyway somehow, and managed to make huge improvements.   We continue to think "That's the last of what could be wrong with it" but so far it has kept proving us wrong.   We're hoping that a mid-winter exorcism, voodoo dance and ritual sacrifice will be successful and Dan will have a trouble free season next year.
