  1. Agreed! Went 7” on my last speedster, decided to go the other way this time. A friend has his at 8” on 21” wires...did rip the plug out on the trailer once.
  2. Z is done, less gussets and grinding welds. Tacked the front cross member in and stacked up the wheels. By the time I was done cutting and grinding and repeating...WB is 90.5” and the rear drop is 6”. Learning as I go.
  3. just a boring ol’ T flat motor with some pretty dress up bits. All the aluminum bits were made by Jerry Sherman out of SoCal in the 60’s and 70’s. The head is a recent repro of his work. Matco cross drive mag set up. Have to figure out the intake, but I have an idea. Carb will be something with a large hole and a barrel valve.
  4. What a great mini-Napier! Kids today wouldn’t even understand. What? Does it move under its own Power?

    20's frame

    How many cars at that time had tubular axle ends? Not a stutz, wrong rear frame bits. Not Lincoln or la salle. I’ll keep looking.
  6. Of course, I have had a helper.
  7. Started a bit of sheet metal, bought 18 gauge, ‘cause I am smart, and like a challenge.
  8. This was a long Sunday afternoon, reshaped the main leaf by hand, cold. Obviously will have to have a new one made.
  9. Been making some progress, but came to a halt this week. Started making the floor and found that not was all as it should be. Had been taking most of the body measurements from the front of the frame rails, back. Seems one is a bit longer than the other by about 1/4 of an inch. Which made me pause. Had planned on building a body, then breaking it all down and doing the frame. But now I don’t trust any of it. So, complete the frame first. This is a rough run out of what I got done.
  10. It is a bummer, took the wind out of the proverbial sails. Yours came out nice!
  11. thanks Greg, are there any shops that can make new rims? Or has anyone had any luck cleaning the bead edge up by welding? I have 4 good wheels and 5 rims, the rims are in rough shape.
