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.
“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.” George Orwell

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe.

The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed.”

Noah Webster, 1787
