    1915 Roadster

    There is a 1915 Saxon Roadster for sale on the HCCA classifieds. Looks like a nice complete and running car for $14,300. He seems to list his cars at a realistic price. I believe he sold a green 1914 a year or two ago

    1903 Model A

    Colorado front range. North of Denver a ways. We did have a discussion on an original engine. He said if I came across one cheap..... Yeah right.

    1903 Model A

    I have been snookered into getting a 1903 on the road that has not run since he owned it. Of course I need help. The previous work was decent but some things not so great First thing is where to get info on basic operation. I have owned T's over the years and am familiar with the planetary gear set up but....my understanding is the lever on the right side should be low and high and should lock in place. This one just applies the outboard band and has to be held in place. The engine in it now is a two cylinder vertical L-head with an open valve train and an old Holley carb. I wo
  4. WOW. Thanks for the input and info. I bought it at auction in Longmont about 8-10 years ago. Took it through a local parade when the grandkids were small and rode in the box. Other than that it stays in storage like a red headed stepchild waiting for it's time in the sun

  6. I think the plan is to strip off the fluff and get down to what I know is original, keep looking for period correct engine and literature, and move forward. A couple of things that bother me is why the steel rims with tread and why only a single drive chain if it was indeed designed as a truck?
  7. Here are more pictures of "The Thing" The steering has a rack and pinion set up with a relay rod to the left wheel and a tie rod back to the right wheel. The front leaf springs run front to rear which is different than the other high wheeler pictures I found. They are transverse mounted. The rear springs also run front to rear but the front of the leaves mount to a transverse spring and the rear mounts to the wood frame
  8. I screwed up the post 1. The pictures overlapped the text.. Part 2 is just a couple of posts above and is the same, just cleaned up
  9. Thanks for the input. I was moving the "Thing" when I took those pictures. I'll get more in a few days. I think it is a kit of some kind. The front axle is a steel tube with linkage behind. It has leaf springs front and rear with a traverse in the rear also. The bed, seat and riser, plus one frame rail have been added on. But even info on kits would be interesting. More pictures coming
  10. It is rather obvious I don't know what I am doing so I'll try again. Can anyone tell me what I have? I picked it up at an auction a few years back. The other guy didn't bid again like I thought he would and I became the proud owner. It is a high wheeler that is now powered by a B&S engine. The wheels have steel rims with a tread design on the rear. Rack and pinion steering, single drive chain on left side, planetary gear set up with external band for second gear. Some kind kit originally?

One frame rail is original, the other side has been made sometime.
  12. It looked like both cars sold pending approval for right at $20k each. The sales price was listed for all cars for a few days after the close of auction
  13. I MIGHT need wood frame pieces soon. A friend is SUPPOSED to be redoing mine now but I haven't talked to him lately to see how things are going. I would suggest making two sets.There are more Saxons out there than I realized when I found mine
  14. Thanks for bringing it back. Just in time for me. I just got that 1914 bought that we talked about. Car number 6119. I'll get it in the registry soon and I'm sure I'll be asking for plenty of input
