If you click on that website I listed and then scroll down, you'll get the option of previous/next. Click on next and that car is the Morgan/Salome. There is a few great cars in that link.



S'all for now!

I just ran across this one today. It's a Crosley/(Miller inspired). Wow, what a beauty.

Don't you just love those massive drum brakes? I quite like the idea of using some wheels without drums built in and then fabricating some dummy drums on the axle ends.

There's an episode of Jay Lennos Garage where he shows off a replica Bentley (the one driven against The Brutus on Top Gear) and has a good look under the car. The brakes are exactly as you described: modern disk brakes "wrapped" in what looks like the outside of a drum brake.

Yes that would be a good way of making useable ones

I don't know if this car has been driven yet as there are no axle shafts in it but with a supercharged (I think) Crosley 750 I imagine you could spin the tread off those skinny tires.

So, where can I find a 500cc straight 6? Haha. That would be the perfect engine if you wanted to build a car one step up from a ck.

A Motorcycle?!! Motoguzzi built a 500 V8 back in the 50's.
Or you could do it the hard way like Crosley did with the COBRA engine.

Well said Mr. Nott!
Our discussion was lost a little in a fog of our imagination!

Therefore - I deleted my writing and photos - no big waste (who liked them, could copy them until now). If other authors do the same, I suppose that half of treads in this sub-forum should be deleted, the same as half of discussions in each tread...

To be more constructive, I will suggest two new sub-forums that would clear this one and make it more practical and useful:
1. Short questions-answers (wheels, tyres, transmission, suspension, steering, materials, parts, paintings... and some other technical details)
2. Garage chats (about Cycle-Karts, but not strictly connected to their design, construction and use – for instance: design techniques, building procedures, technology, tools, experiences, gatherings, dilemmas...)

Regards, Zoran

This is already the "CycleKart Tech Forum" which I believe includes points #1 and #2
To complement this forum specifically for CycleKarts, the Custom Karts forum description reads:

Discussion forum for other "one of a kind" vintage replica kart projects (non-spec)

The description of the Off Topic Forum is as follows, which covers #3

Chit-chat forum for new member introductions & all non-cyclekart topics, including other light motorized vehicles, modern or classic. No politics please!

I could change the name from Off Topic Forum to "Garage Talk" if that makes it more clear. On some other websites I call that forum "The Pub", which may be better for evoking a sense of related interests & banter.
