It is listed with the diablo but it is called the Varna2. An older version of the diablo that I modified to diablo specs. It has been to 62 mph as the original version ridden by Sam in the early 90s.

My modified version went to 66.6 powered by a woman, Lisa Vetterlein. It broke the record in 2005.

Later we had it ridden by a guy, Rob English, who did some efforts in one hour competition with some success, setting a British record. It is hanging on my wall somewhat like a hunter who would hang the head of his rhino.

If the right circumstances were to pop up. It could be brought down off the wall and raced again. Not a bad career for a bicycle. Top mens record and top womans record.

“There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
