Kart-style Metro

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis

There's going to be a lot of photos coming to SSBB in the near future from the 2014 Retro Rides Gathering, but I thought we should start off with just a few snaps of one of the unexpected stars of the show: this Metro City.
It's extremely straight and clean, which all works to its credit, but you've probably noticed the key modification: flying in the face of the arms race of inches that's going on in the world of wheels, this Metro has gone the other way. What you're seeing here is a shiny set of 10" Force Racing Mamba-style split-rims, with 195/50 B10 tyres. This presumably does the acceleration all kinds of favours, and also looks weirdly brilliant. It certainly put a smile on everybody's face.
