    Anyone have a pic of a Sandford threewheeler? I have an engine here to restore for a Sandford threewheeler. It is a 4 cylinder inline, watercooled Ruby engine. So far, this is the only Sandford 3-wheeler that I know of.

  10. Back in the late 70's a guy showed up at the Lodi Grape Festival run with a 3/4 scale "T" bucket, it had a 750 Honda motorcycle engine in the front. That was a wicked little car. I was sitting on the grass at the Hotel watching cars go by. He pulled out from a Hotel a few places down from us. He got on it and the front wheels lifted about 3" off the ground. He shifted and away he went. I'd love to find that car today. Chain drive if I remember right, maybe a Harley trike rear axle.

    Yep, that Harley rear axle makes it easy. You have your transmission built in with the engine. Except today you'd be hard pressed to liberate an Harley axle to use in something other than a Servi-car.

    I can't "talk cycle cars" because I am ignorant about them. BUT, I LOVE this thread & looking at & learning about them. Thanks everyone for sharing!!

    Thanks for sharing. I recently watched a YT about folks who build cycle karts and race them. Seems they have the greatest time.

  25. Victoria, Australia. Croydon, kilsyth , Montrose ,Kalorama Mt Dandenong is hilly country. Wonder how long that little car lasted there. Those liscense plates are worth a fortune now.
    Croydon had a great twin Drive-In with 1100 car capacity :eek: up till 1990. Fun times :cool: in the 70s

    I don't know what it is. I do like the acetylene generator and headlamp. I can't tell if there is one on the other side or not.
