Saw a mountain bike on the train this morning "M3 GTS".

It had the famous M tri-colour stripes beside the M3 and the GTS logo was also in the right type-face, as was the rest. Looking online, I can't see anything like it. I guess it is a non-official production.

Missing two wheels, a 4.4L V8, two clutches and 450hp. :wink:

Wow that's interesting. I wouldn't mind having a go on one of those, just so long as it was someone else's money!

Porsch have launched three new bikes.


I remember riding a Porsch brand bike in the 90's which was made by Votec (I believe) and was SRAM equipt and cost 8 grand back then. Not mine though.
