Red Lady is still a work in progress. This is a model for a small production
of fired clay body and lathe turned wheels. Overall about 15 inches long.
This is my Carbie project that started as a pile of old Model A brass
Kingston Carburetors I had collected from Auctions. They were kinda neat
and thought I would make this manifold stand and plumb in all the gas lines
and make up some linkage to run the throttles. I had the big brass pressure
gauge from another auction and made a new face for it to add to the "project".
is the trike project that has been one of the most difficult ones I have
taken on. The concept was to build a trike with the rear wheels that would
lean with you into a turn. Along with this I was experimenting with a very
low and completely different type of steering. This project is scaled at
4.5 to 1 and has a hand built Guzzi motor.
was my third model I made with scrap metal from my shop. The Original Idea
came from wanting to build a V6 cruiser. A friend of mine owns a Chrysler
junk yard and visiting him one day I seen this drive train that I thought
would work out pretty well for my V6 Cruiser idea. This is a model based
on those thoughts along with a idea of using braided exhaust pipes. This
model is all steel and has working suspension.
was an idea I had some years ago when I was hill climbing. One of the most
impractical things I thought of but still want to build a full scale working
unit. I made this starting with the tires and worked from there. If I were
to do this again I think it would be a little different but the same concept.
I made a little model of a Morini V2 motor for this thing. It articulates
in the middle with the handle bars and the chain drive also functions.
is an old project that took a whole summer to complete. Click on this one
and it will take you to another page with old projects that have been completed,
some time ago.
