Appreciate that Greg .. it is more of a case that you might have more contacts over there ?

I do have some rather special contacts overthere and yes, they have been informed, that you're looking for a frame.

Thanx Greg - really appreciate your efforts.

This is the sort of thing I'm looking for. Curved front girder forks would be a bonus. Just the bare rolling chassis would do me. I missed one on E-Bay last year a 1927 Motobecane B7 [?] - it was a 250 or 350 cc engined model.

Further progress. The bike ramp has been dug out of my garage and been jet-washed, ready to go round to Brian's next week.

While we were at it - I unpacked my engine crane [ bought last year !! ] and assembled it and my engine stand - AND managed to get my spare Volvo 2.3 Turbo lump mounted ready for the Eaton Blower exercise. Looks like it's a goer package wise.

Progress - the end straight is in view !  ;D

Ramp now installed in my pal Brian's workshop - frame and parts will be going round in the next two weeks. Then it's a blitz after Christmas to get the rolling chassis as complete as possible before he's off to work on his property in the US for 3 months.  :'(

While he's away I'll be working on the spare engine / frame [ in my shed ! ] making patterns for the blower mounts, manifolding etc. I'll also be working in tandem on the Weber 40DCOE motor.

A bit better than my shed eh ? ;)

Thanx CC

not only that, but Brian is the guy that used to be the UK agent for Russell Hosing and still has all his tools [ see the cut off saw ] and quite a few fittings.

Yes, really stoked - plus I'll have that "build buddy" to give me the kick up the ass as and when needed. He's very skilled in wood pattern making [ apprenticed with Rover ] and will prove his worth with mocking up the blower installation and the under frame fuel cell.

Having a buddy can make a big difference.  I'm moving part of my stuff into a shared workshop shortly for that reason.  I need the space and a kick in the butt.

Here's the point I need the drive sprocket to rear sprocket alignment measurement. IOW - I need to know how far out from the casing the sprocket c/l is. That's just so I can roughly position the rear wheel and sprocket to get spacers made. I'll allow for shimming for true alignment once the "real" engine is in the chassis. We even have a lazer alignment tool !

I can get you that measurement later this evening.
