It begins again...I have caught the fever! After just finishing my first build, I am assembling parts for CycleKart number 2. Thought about a 1926-27 Talbot-Darracq for a long time and wanted to build one to have the gulf racing colors, like Steve McQueen in Le Mans, but also thinking of another "Silver Arrow" Mercedes, maybe 1939? Just not sure between the two.

Hey Rhauck,

Have you got a list of the parts on the tarp and a approximate cost? Looks like all you need is the frame and the skin for the CK. What can you tell us about the front axle? I'm looking for info on hydraulic brakes and I see a setup in your parts, who and what are you using?

OK, I know lots of questions, but with this 1 pic, you have peaked my interest in many of the items that you show. If you would be so kind as to share the suppliers and items that you show it would be greatly appreciated, at least by me, but I'm sure others as well.

No problem here is the list so far:

Heavy Duty Differential Axle 38 inch
#35/60 tooth sprocket
4 17 inch wheels
set of two rear wheel adapters
front axle assembly kit
front leaf springs
brake rotor
brake master and caliper set
brake hose kit
brake and gas pedal assembly
handlebar mirrors Amazon
5/8 miniature flange bearing Amazon
11" rack and pinon unit Amazon
U-Joint (EMPI 3149) Amazon
Grote push/pull switch Amazon
17 x 2.75 inch tires/tubes/rim strips Amazon

I shop around for most of the parts on the sites above and with ebay never know on any given day where things are the cheapest. I will say that for the front axle, wheels, and braking system vintagekart company is the place to go. The owners Name is Jack Gee and he will set you up with very much top notch equipment. I am a very crappy welder and don't trust my own welding above 10 mph...So with that I have to go out and find the front axle from vintage kart. Very well made and nearly indestructible. I toured their facility and drove their karts. Awesome stuff.

Hopefully this helps, the rest is the frame and skin components of which either I have purchased aluminum through or I have purchased balsa wood through everything else wood, bolts, paint, fiberglass, resin, etc.. have all been from home depot or Tacoma screw.

Honda GX 200 engine/exhaust set

solid tie rod delux kits 3/8-24 x 11"
