Battery is ready (and also the charger). Bought a headlight from old soviet car to insert into the brass headlight. Started to work on faux engine in the front. More photos here.

Hi Brian,
Re your wish for 50+ horsepower: I suggest you take a look at

www.pembleton.co.uk

Been there, done that. and You are right ! But then it's not a 6hp cyclekart.

Hello Semen,
Great work indeed: from imagination to realisation of entire project, concept and details!

P.S.: next time to build one real V-Twin engine, working?

Thanks. Not a problem to install a real V-twin engine. Problem is to make such vehicle road legal here.

In reply to # 24238 by Wurger Thanks. Not a problem to install a real V-twin engine. Problem is to make such vehicle road legal here.
======================================
... no possibility to use European Union directives fro ligth or heavy threewheelers and quadricycles?
My Serbia accepted such directives and made own laws and standards for such small motorised vehicles!
Swiss have something similar... Vehicle built under such directives could be attested, insured and registered for road use.
Zoran
P.S.: If such vehicle isn't possible (for now in Ukraine), then just big V-Twin in a style of old JAP? Playing with it until legal possibilities appeared?
Maybe to present it as survived original oldtimer, reoconstructed and modified a little? smoking smiley

Too long to explain. You have to comply with a lot of obsolete and/or stupid standards and undergo a lot of VERY expensive paid procedures to check if you comply. Not possible for self-made cars. Period. This is done to protect the existing monopolies in car manufacturing market.

I had not been following your build until now. Beautiful work!

Sorry about the problems with regulations. Many Americans feel that we are the only country with over-restrictive rules on everything. while I agree that there are too many regulations that seem to be there for the benefit of large corporations, there are also many that protect the health and safety of millions of people. It's a mixed bag and a complicated problem that can't be solved by simplistic solutions.

I'm looking forward to how your electric drivetrain goes. I'm working on getting an electric Cyclekart ready for the races in Tieton, USA. I'm using a 5KW motor and controller from www.goldenmotor.com and battery from a Chevrolet Volt.

Have you seen the electric cars built by Johnny Dumfries? Go to www.gittrevillegp.com and look under 'The cars A-B-C' and you'll see a few of his electrics. Definitely check out the 1923 Austin Seven!

Can't wait to see what you do next.

Thanks Bryan. I did use this website in the past during preparations for the project and especially this http://www.gittrevillegp.com/www.gittrevillegp.com/The_Cars_B/Pages/Morgan_F2.html
