Amilcar CGS with Australian built Hotchkiss body.Raced by the mistress of a Bugatti dealer in Melbourne.Dormant for 50 years . Australian Amilcar pics.
I'd take all that Amilcar junk off their hands - would go as high as £25
That is a very interesting layout. Looks like something is missing with the 2 fork things on both wheels.
I see pictures,both old and new,of these cars and I don't get sense of scale.This is really tiny!
Some of Lea Lhomer's images of the Jacques Potherat Rally.I know the Peugeot Dar'l Mat roadster is not a cyclecar. They are pretty little cars none the less...
No risk no fun.

i don't understand the dialog, but the visual is cool.
Just a few Marc pics from the IX jacques Potherat Trophee run.
Was looking for info on the "Macomber Rotary Engine". Google turned up this scanned book online:
Carette: America's First Carette and Cyclecar, Volume 2"
This could be a home built car. Anyone recognize the radiator?
"Max Jervis of Cheltenham asked about this car, apparently run by members of his family in North Staffordshire shortly after WW1"
There is a lorry in the background so they maybe had a garage, the car could be made up from bits on a pre war chassis and a home made body fitted, looks crude.
There's a bit of Trojanishness about that. I don't know Trojans well enough really to compare.
llo everyone. For those interested Cyclecars. I have just had another small batch of books printed. 'How to build a cyclecar' and a new reprint: 'Light Cars & Cyclercars of 1914'. Here
Tim,thanks for posting. Maybe post some of your other "for sale" bits here too? Bob

I'll bet that radial sounds sweet. Summer is here in the east, FINALLY. I love the sound of radial air planes headed to air shows flying over the house.
I used to live and work very close to the EAA Flyin at Oshkosh,Wisconsin.You are absolutely right Doug.The week before and just after the show ,the air was filled with planes burbling along powered by their radials engines.Here in Alaska,planes with radial engines are still used commercially.So I get to hear that sound on a regular basis.
Salmson, not sure of year.
A pile of copied pages from periodicals. I don't know how well they will post...from Guillaume Lourdel
To think Bugatti thought that Bentley made lorries!
