Hi and thank you for the welcome.  I am down in the South west near Taunton. Do you have any other members , builders or owners in this area ?

I have built several kit cars over the years , have a love of classics , especially old race cars . Visited Goodwood revival many times , drool over the racing Alfas, ERA etc . Very interested in what you guys are doing .
Think the idea of a Buddy system on here is very good to help with builds.

Great.  Yes there's someone in Burnham-on-Sea who has built a couple of fantastic looking cyclekarts.  Not sure if he's on the forum but is on the Facebook Group.

Have you got a particular inspiration vehicle in mind?

Hi Stefan, well as my Intro mentioned , I do have a liking of the British ERA and Italian Racing machinery , such as Alfa.
 Do like the look of boat tail cars

 But am impressed with all the builds on here. Have looked at the American website too , some great cars.

I am not on Facebook , but could be tempted to join , for info etc .

Is it it Rhysn on here who has cars for sale ?

May be interested in a started chassis , or something that can be re-bodied perhaps .

Have a look in the For sale and wanted area of the forum - I think you have some choice at the moment.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I have a chassis which looks like I won't be using, I bought it off of a member here (Rhys) to get a head start on the building of my son's CK. However I decided to go the same route as I used on my Maserati CK. I can take a couple of pictures if you are interested.

Hi GT, Thank you for your welcome and chassis offer.  :)

 Coincidentally or not (as he seems to be the man to be the "Man with the Plan" ) I have also been in touch with Rhys to see what he has for sale.

What can you tell me about the chassis , how far along is it (Build wise) ?

Best regards, chris

It's a complete, base ladder frame chassis, it's sized for 66" wheel base.
When I get home after work I'll take a couple of photos and put them up here.

Regards

Bill
