Delage 15-S-8
« on: 06 May 2019, 01:26:54 pm »
Hey all,
 I am on the final stages of planning my cyclekart build and plan on starting before the end of the month. It will be a Delage 15-S-8 but as a modern interpretation (matte black, sleek look, LEDs, modern steering wheel etc). I will be building it the 'wrong' way round, starting with the bodywork, tub and formers which I want to be all one big unit that just slips into the chassis. I will still be helping dad (Stefan) with things on the Bugatti but expect to see lots of updates from me in the near future.

Marek  :)

THE BUILD HAS BEGUN!

 I have finally started the delage modern build. Every stage of this build will have its own short youtube video so that will be an easy way of you all seeing what I've done and how. if you have any suggestions on how I should do this or anything I should change about what I have already done please do say.

 Due to design changes of the main chassis I have started with the wheels, pulling the old bearings and putting the new bearings in the front and fitting tyres to them all. More on this will be shown in the first video which should be done soon. :)

Looking forward to the build journal Marek. If you are looking for advice, I suggest you follow your own previous style....  ;) ..... Seriously, put your own mark on it, show us oldies a young perspective. We need variety. Good man.

Great a video showing how to do the bearing, I feel certain this is one of the sticking points for people starting out.
Expect it to be popular :-)

I have no idea!!! But I can't complain because he makes mysterious packages, with cyclekart parts inside, appear for me. ;D

Thank you. The wheels were bought online from a pit bike dealer. He sells them in pairs but had 4 front wheels from using the rears in warranties.

Sadly it was just a one off but if there is a motorbike store near you or online they might be able to help.

Great video (some of us old fellas might not enjoy the "music?"  ;D)
For easier results, use a firm bench and a heavier hammer, fewer hits do less damage .

UPDATE:

The rail pieces are cut and laid out on a piece of reinforced MDF as a worktable for welding. My chassis is stupidly complex but I think it will be worth it and things are going pretty smoothly so far...  :)

Another video will be out when it is welded so hopefully before Stretton.
