Show us your Plop!!.....

Every one of the bikes entered in the Plop Enduro are one-offs, modified by each team in a wide variety of ways and sometimes to amazingly high standards.
Here's your opportunity to show off your steed.
So come on. Show us your Plop!! :D

Here's mine, built for function, not looks!...........

Brakes are for wimps ,the pedal is too low and will touch. Hand lever on bars instead. ;)

The original rear brake pedal is the first thing to ground out on the RH side.
It has been known for them to be ground through completely and fall in half during a race! :)
So a lot of the bikes have been fitted with LH levers on the bars for the rear brake.
Very effective and gives a lot more ground clearance when cranking it over! :D

We try not to use the brakes too much tho. They slow you down too much! :lol:
