Got to love the art work, especially like the clam shell wheel arches, so many don't seem to like them but I do.

There are lots of neat cars from the 19-teens that have just them right proportions and stance for a CK

this stutz indy racer...



...and, of course, the 1913 grand prix Peugeot...




how about this 1915 Duesenberg indy racer?

a few more ideas. anybody up for doing a transverse biuggy spring front end?

the model T and Model A speedster lend themselves well to the usual cyclekart proportions





this one is my favorite, two versions of the same car, one with wires and a T radiator, the other with disc wheels and a deuce grille. check out that tail!





then again, here's some bare-bones speedster goodness. almost already looks like a CK!

I like the idea of a transverse leaf spring. I had a 1958 Wartburg with this layout. It handled beautifully as the spring acts as an anti-roll bar. The ends of the spring were free to slide in greased blocks.

Here is another cyclecar that I played with in CAD. The Jappic was a very fast, light weight, streamlined racer. The body would need to be done in alum. to get the shape, I think.

Rhys, is there a build thread on it somewhere?

Here is the photo log of the Jappic build. You need to scroll down a bit and find 3 sets of pix of the build. There are 150 or so photos.

Along in there you will find a pic of the drawing he made. I am not able to read the dimensions but I drew over his lines for my CAD drawing. I think it is a bit too big for a CK in full scale from looking at the photos.

Not as far as I know. It is being re-created as close to genuine as possible by someone who prefers to "do" rather than go on line about their exploits.

Victor,
I think the engineer who's site is Littlegreenaustin or similar (Anne mentioned his work on this forum recently)is building a replica of this car.
