Brian, I agree. I am planning to plagiarise the J40 pedal arrangement, as there is an adjustable feature for different leg lengths.

Just too cute.
I had a 49 A40 Dorset back in1968.
Lots of fun with that car.
Paid $30.00 for it.......drove it to school all winter, sold it in the spring of 69 for $10.00
Wish I still had it!

Brian, a Morris Minor was the best car I have ever owned. It was so economical and reliable, there was never any reason to sell it.
In the end it succombed to rust, however I sold the early number plate for more than the original cost of the car.



Here's a photo of the pedals, the footrest position is adjustable.

Notice that the the pedals are angled, this because of the very narrow Bugatti nose. Earlier I thought that the project might fail from not enough space to fit pedals.

Also is a picture of the pullrod to crank bearing attachment. This method works very well indeed.

I used a 49 Morris Rear End (differential) in my "Speedster".

The fitting of an inexpensive bicycle band-brake was straightforward, it is fitted to the rear non-driven wheel.

First test drive today.

Alfie is not yet 4 years old and he could reach the pedals OK, with the pedals set all the way back.

An older, stronger child will make this thing move.
