Oh yes I remember that car from the Microcar Museum website. It's very much like a cyclekart in its general layout and proportions.

Hello to all,
Again, somehting different then vintage GP racers as inspiration, but racer at least - small CROSLEY-special:

front-wheel drive, de-dion front axle, front drum-brakes, quarter-eliptic springs at front, coil coil-springs at rear...

A lot of complexity for small car: possiblly some ideas for us that like that...

Ciao, Zoran

These are great pictures and an interesting car. But is it made for someone without legs?! How does the driver fit in there?

Love the Crosley! I thought the type 35 Bugatti had a lovely front axle but that one is wonderful.

Austin 7 1936, trying to look like a CycleKart, check out the "wood" body work, spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

There's some more pics in my gallery and a link to a video of it being driven in my blog.

Cheers

Mark

Hello there,
Not really vintage GP automobile as inspiration, but almost the Cycle-Kart by itself - just a little bigger.
Ciao, Zoran

Here is a good one to look at. This is a new build of a full size Jappic cyclecar. He just got the wheels onto it.

Hello Victor,
Thank you for nice photo of nice car!
Could it be possible that front suspension of that ERA racer is similar to VW-beetle front suspesnion? If so - who was the first?
