In reply to # 19092 by Macadoo Thanks, but still need to know where that page 'Is'. I'll keep huntin' of course, but thought someone may have seen the same picture. Thanks again for the Reply!

Sounds like one of the Austin 7 ones? You could try Dennis' BMW build, or Bobs .On the Gittreville site try this http://www.gittrevillegp.com/www.gittrevillegp.com/The_Cars_C/Pages/Austin_Seven_%22Boulogne%22.html

In reply to # 18981 by Macadoo Heya! Am a new guy, & looking at everything- great site! Neater cars! I lost my place where I first saw the 'Cycle Kart Tech Forum'. It was at the page bottom, with 2 other places to poke around & had a picture of a front suspension that is what I have in mind. The springs were mounted below the frame to pivots off a central, narrowed-at-front, frame extension, & shackled at the axle spindles. There was a narrow & nearly flat brace, like a long, narrow 'A' frame, mounted in the same manner, above that. I can't seem to find the picture again, wonder if anyone recalls, or has seen the same picture, or who might the builder be. I'm hoping it would be a club member! (Thanks from The Lost Guy!)

Hello Mike,
Rhys was faster than I tried: that should be replica of Austin-7 special and you coudl take a looks at this topic/thread in this Club:

You could see more variants in that competition for the best replica of Austin-7 special...

Regards!

P.S.: Rhys, YOU DO NOT LOOKS TO ME AS OLD GRUMPY MAN?
(or nothing more than most of us present here, as builders or voyeurs)

Looking through BMI Karts for some other stuff, I spotted their "Trailer Mover Package". Substitute the axle and you have almost all the rear assembly. Still need a brake, but as a package this is very good value.

It looks like the last post listing a leafspring supplier was a couple of years ago. Where are you guys finding leave springs these days?

I think most of the guys are using Vintage Kart Co. for their springs now.
And Ray....where did you find that picture of the old gas station with the
vintage racer parked in front? I collect old gas station pictures and added
the one to my archive, but would like to have a little higher resolution picture
of it.
Thanks

Thanks for the info Denny!
I actually took that photo and the car belonged to me.
The gas station was just down the road from my home in the Lutton community on Old Springfield pike in Goodlettsville, Tn.
A very cool place!
The store has an interesting history!
It was the site of an infamous axe murder where a moonshine deal went bad back in the early 1900s.
It stayed in business until the 50s when traffic was routed to the then new Route 41 which brought about the end for the store.
At the time of that photo it was owned by a music producer who held jam sessions there where legends of bluegrass and country music would come and jam.
The car had a great story too!
My father and I found that Car behind a barn with a tree growing through it in Clinton, NJ.
We cut the tree down loaded the car and dragged it back to Tennessee.
Shortly after starting to restore it my father passed away.
It went from a father son project with my dad to one with my twin sons who were 7 at the time.
The car loosely based on a Bugatti type35 was comprised of parts from everything from Modal T to VW and even Bugatti with much of it hand fabricated.
We called it Old 77 because my father was a driver back in his younger years and his number was 77.
I traded it for another car that belong to my father when I was a kid back in Texas.(That’s another story I love to tell. if you want to hear it let me know smiling smiley )
It was the most exiting car I’ve ever driven. Totally exhilarating...
So I want to build a cyclekart replica of it because they look like a blast as well!!!
Here’s another photo.
