    It's real, he's a local guy. I wasn't sure it was his until I saw the bucking bronco horse on the back. He drives the wheels off of it, it's very modified and very fast.

    Cool I was browsing another forum and this picture came up and they were saying it was fake. Didn't think it was but I thought I remember seeing it here so I thought I would ask.


    Thanks,

    Pat

    No, it is not. The guy who made the kit for me got that detail wrong.

    The bike is a Cannondale which is made in the US.

    The duct is not closed. That is race tape. Believe me, it's a real F40.

    I totally believe you on this being a real F40. I was trying to squash some rumors on another board that it wasn't a kit but in fact the real Mcoy. Thanks for helping me answer some questions on it.

    It hasn't got the "F40" indent on the side of the rear wing. I can see the wing is not standard but I thought only the middle part would be replaced while the sides are an integral part of the rear hatch.

    The F40 indent was only on one side of the car, on the second photo it is visible.
