The inspiration for this model arose from noticing that while many modern Meccano sets include instructions for building a motorcycle, none of them seemed all that realistic. Notably they all lacked a traditional welded tube frame, so we decided to see if it was possible to simulate such a frame using rods and rod connectors.

In theory you should be seeing a drive belt from the gearbox to the rear wheel. Unfortunately it was quite an old one and it snapped just before these pictures were taken.
