Maybe... but the engine cover will be insulated with automotive on the underside... and plenty of air from underneath should be ok.

HA HA!~

Not a class project... But, our group here has full use of a high school's auto shop for our meets... including their CNC machine.

I've had this in my head for a while so with the gracious help of Adam Arndt here in Salt Lake. This one will come together... and she'll be mean.

Hi there Kelly, good morning Brian,

Well we sure have a nice coat of ice here in Mission but we are working inside on the wall sheeting to the 'steel shop', CK Skunk Werks, which will the name of the shop when complete.

Gentlemen, I have a question. What is the vertical blade out front of the cycle car? I have noticed them on a few now . . .

I just can't wait till my crates arrive from NZ.

Stay safe and keep building.

ps. I have found a Clausing 12 X 46 bench lathe for $1200. It's mine.smiling bouncing smiley

Yes, I have seen them on race cars before too.
I am lead to believe that it is for timing purposes....it is the point that officially
breaks the timing beams at start and finish lines.

Hello, James!
You could see such "knife" on every British special for sprint/hillclimbing racing!
It serves for cutting electronic line at the finish-line - no more stop-watches for measuring time!
Ciao,
Zoran

Hello, Kelly!
You are going again over less-used paths!
The great choice for the inspirational car!

If you didn't tell us, or we do not know you - we could think that on your photos is one of the original British specials!
Some have engines here-and-there, moved trough racing career...

(maybe to move the seat a little to the right, as racing go-karts have?)

Regards and respect!
Zoran

Thank you so much. That helps greatly.

Of course this won't be perfect... however I'm hopeful that my rendition will do it Justice.

... but I'm not puttin those fenders on it. No way. smiling smiley
