About "The Hornet" in the words of Duncan Pittaway. I built the car about 20 odd years ago. The chassis is from a 1924/5 5cv Citroen which John Champ found in a hedge in France and bought for £35. Front axle is genuine Frazer Nash... albeit the main tube was cracked and I re-tubed it straight like a GN. The front aluminium back plates were so rotten that I cut most of them away... not sure how effective they are, but they sure look lightened! The back axle is GN and copied almost exactly from the "Ceasar" special that Mark owns. Engines are two Harley Davidson JD V-Twin's from 1926 complete with "Riccardo chips" in the top of each barrel to increase the compression ratio. When I first used it in the early '90's, I ran them on straight methanol with a pair of Amal GP carbs, but when I lent it to Robin he converted it to run on SU's and petrol. It's easier to drive on petrol, but won't rev as well ... and isn't as fast! The transmission is my own concoction.... using two 2 speed cross shafts with GN style dog clutches to get four gears, and a beefed up HD clutch. There's 11 chains in total, including the one driving the rev counter! Finally .....the steering's via a 1922 Jowett 7HP steering box... 1/3 of a turn lock to lock.... wheels 19" Rudge...... fuel tank, oil tank, pedals, gauges, etc, Beaulieau autojumble finds..... throttle pedal a '20's Whitworth spanner! Inspired by Bolster's four JAP engined car I couldn't afford KTOR engines so the HD 1,200's were the obvious vintage choice. I always planned to fit two more JD engines, and still have the other two "in stock" ready... effectively making it up to a 5 litre V8!!
