Speedster proportions and design thoughts


Recommended Posts


Kissel manufactured some really beautiful production speedsters, as did Daniels, Stutz, and Marmon. Google "Kissel Speedster" and you'll get a lot of pics.

Below is a picture of what is said to be a custom built 1918 period Kissel Speedster. I cannot determine if it is actually based on a Kissel, but its neat!

I had not been through a Dykes of 1930.  That looks like some sound professional instructions.  I also noticed on the American-LaFrance speedster shown by genebe above, he must have tried a couple of different gearing changes as the drive sprockets are different sized in each picture.  If genebe checks here, how about a comment about the drive sprockets?
