  4. Here a link to a video about the speedster metamorphosis. I hope you enjoy it: https://youtu.be/KVlB7dOnk8M
  5. Lately I have been thinking the same. One good project takes years. Mine 7 since I started watching a mesmerizing video about big engine speedsters. Since few days it is mecanically finished. Track tests concluded and my wife happy that from now on I come into the living room without a gas perfumed black greased face. I am delighted to have decided to build a speedster. Am 60 and will take care of it for a hopefully long time. I would not start another project of this size... unless....oh, never mind.... Be safe and enjoy while we can. Life flies by!!

  7. Remember to visit facebook and watch some videos: @seagrave1929 @unicorninvictus

  9. April 2020, time goes and improvements fill the records. Up to today I have rebuilt the speedster and will to running tests in the next weeks. It has been a wonderful job with lots of exiting adventures. Here some pics
  10. Time is short nowdays and trying to invest every free minute in the speedster. Wheels will be cast aluminum and hope they will run. Engine will be ready for kickstart in february,
  11. About repositioning the engine and steering shaft.
  12. August 2019... The project becomes more and more reality, dozens of parts remanufactured and repaired. Now it comes to reposition the engine and control gear. I could lower the steering shaft down to the angle I find best by moving the engine about 15 cm back. steering gearbox and carburetor had a space conflict, so I turned the carb 180 deg. Seat, steering wheel and gear shafts repositioned. After looking for more than one year for rims it turns out that we will remanufacture the rims in aluminum cast. Wood molds are being made at the moment. This is a major improvement as I prioritize o
  13. Wow! What a good advice! This is a dream of a solution!! Thank you!!
