  1. This looks similar. Different year maybe?
  2. I'm not sure if the spring is original. It looks a bit home made. You might find someone else with one of these on the SmokStak Downunder forum.
  3. Here's one I bought off a guy on the Tour de Fleurieu a few years back. I might try it on my Le Zèbre some day.
  4. Some related info here: https://riders.drivemag.com/features/1910-pierce-four-road-test-the-vibrationless-motorcycle/
  5. Who likes Cadillacs with Tailfins? Everyone. I don't know if the front bumper protrusions had an official name but here is an article on their progression. https://www.curbsideclassic.com/design-3/design-history-cadillacs-dagmars-an-intimate-look-at-their-origins-development-and-namesake/
  6. Here are a few pictures from gallica.bnf.fr of the Stabilia, a French underslung car. The drawing is from a 1905 issue of Le Chauffeur and the photo is from a 1912 issue of La Vie au Grand Air covering the Paris Motor Show. The founder of Stabilia, Edouard Vrard, previously worked at Leon Bollee so perhaps he was involved with the design of the Leon Bollee underslung racecar of 1899.
  7. Veering off topic here are some Regal photos from 1919 in Sydney.
  8. The photo is in Silverwater. I took it to the Berrima Rally this year if you went to that.
  9. Nzcarnerd, there is a Fritchle at History Colorado. It’s an interesting car, amongst other things they had regenerative braking. https://www.brhoward.com/historic-vehicles/fritchle-electric-colonial-coupe-1915 https://www.denverpost.com/2014/08/12/a-1914-fritchle-electric-car-reinstalled-in-history-colorado-center http://digital.auraria.edu/content/AA/00/00/16/79/00001/AA00001679_00001.pdf https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/4012701
  10. La Jamais Contente 100km/h in 1899.
  11. Hi Kevin, It’s a 1916 Cole/Northway V8. Hopefully it’s not one of the early engines they had problems with. It’s packed away at the moment. I’ll take some photos of it next week. Andrew
  12. Great video! I've got one of those Northway V8s I'm planning to put into an of the era Special.
