    What a Cyclo can do to a Delorean.

    With enough time that is! How much time you ask? How about 4 hours per square inch!!!

    Re: What a Cyclo can do to a Delorean.

    WOW, I have to say that’s really cool. I have a Cyclo that was made in 1953 used at the Fire Department for years and was thrown in the trash when the cord got frayed. I replaced the cord 20 years ago and the pad holders last year, liked the Velcro. I know a lot is to be said for a bunch of others but that’s longevity. GREAT Machines.

    Re: What a Cyclo can do to a Delorean.

    Just sold my Cyclo on Ebay. I'm having mixed emotions as it was as perfect of a machine as a machine could be imo. At least in the build quality and reliability department. I just wanted to try something with more power though so I'll be picking up a Griot's 6" ROP. This coupled with my Dewalt rotary (which I now love) should be all I need to correct any finish I come across.

    If the day comes that Cyclo ever updates it to have more than one speed, or even forced rotation ala Flex 3401 I'll promptly sell the GG and buy the Cyclo. There's just something about owning and using an extremely well built machine put together by my countrymen that brings it up a notch in my book.
