Hello, Chuck! Nothing new here - just excellent work continued with magnificent results! Couldn't wait on the final result, especially of your home-made engine! Maybe you mentioned before - but how smaller would be your variant of Sima-Violet? I think that you could make one full-size replica! At my something more serious auto - Trabant 601, I had a motorcycle system for gasoline tank: gravity-feed, with a valve for opened-closed-reserve - and, a stick with a scale to measure how much gasoline I had! All the best in the following process of construction! Ciao, Zoran

Hi Zoran. Thanks for the comment. I haven't really done my research on the actual size of a Sima-Violet. I'm using the Stevenson set-out dimensions for the size of the kart. I was drawn to the Sima-Violet because of its raw look but will probably wonder about as I get inspired by other images that I come across. I have this intention to develop a kart the way cyclecars may have been developed originally: inspired by what others have achieved; then built with the materials, machines, and know-how of the locality. 90% of the materials and hardware is sourced from my garage. The know-how is flavored by the Portland Oregon vintage motorcycle racing scene. Thanks for the support on the gravity-feed fuel plan. I think it will work although at first I was a bit hesitant to consider a layout that would put me underneath the tank with the fuel tap in my lap. I would feel more comfortable above it, and able to throw it all down the road ahead of me. Cheers, Chuck
