Close enough for me, but most likely a cycle car. The deciding factors are engine, wheel base and weight.



S'all for now!

It most definitely is Geoff, and great to drive too, I very much appreciated you letting me have a go. You and Graham are first in the queue to drive the Morgan once it's done.

=======================================================
So, Geof,
Almost general conclusion is that your magnificent creation is true CycleKart and not Custom-kart or cyclecar.

Cyclecartism started as building scaled-down replicas of vintage-era GPracers - because Stevensons like them the best.
The same was with their "rules" (descriptions of what they found as the most practical and the best compromise of design, style and technical solutions - for them...
Now, there are quite wide filed for finding a place of somebody's own ideas and dreams what is the "standard" CycleKart.

Your scaled-down replica of 1934 Hornet sport-special is for sure in limits of modernised standards for acceptable CycleKart, both by design, technique and spirit.
It is at the same time one of the best replicas, almost the same as an inspirational automobile, built in the best proportions and details that I saw until now here in CK-Club!
Having seen it alone, without full-size cars or persons - it would like the real thing!





For you: nice feeling to have scaled-down replica and real automobile at the same place - looking like the nice countryside scene in England...

It would be good if you open your own topic here in CyclekartTech sub-forum and posted more photos and information, including those from a process of construction.

Regards,
Zoran

It took me a moment to realize what I'd been presented with .... As a builder, I have all sorts of questions about its construction, and that's a conversation I hope you participate in. Meanwhile, I will just look at your photos - in awe of your vision and ability.

Proportion is always the tell-tale issue with scaled cars, but you succeeded where so many do not. I would be interested in a brief photo log of the build.

Frankly, who cares about how excellent the cyclekart is, or how much it looks like the inspiration car?

Let’s talk about that inspiration car! Hehe. Gosh, I do love that type and style.

What a fantastic package you have there.

Which one’s more fun?

Peace,

A few progress photos as requested.

There also some clips on youtube under heading Geoff May. I would put a link on here but no idea how, I can handle a micrometer and a hammer but not a microchip or mouse!
Cheers, Geoff

With reference to above video .

Before anyone starts to put cable front brakes on their CK in practice it was not 100% successful due to cables pulling during turning. I have started to make them operated by a slave hydraulic M/cycle clutch slave cyl as shown on attached pictures. On these pictures you can see the turned disc in the back plate held in with 4 grub screws. there is also a pin which locates in stub axle to prevent the back plate turning. You can also see a bracket has to be cut off of one of the back plates and another one fabricated to hold the slave cylinder. This is because the Honda back plates are not "handed" and one has to be altered.

This has not yet been put to use, so hold this space!


Cheers, Geoff
