For those that want a light weight....all engine, go fast speedster, check out the one on E-bay item #2213764016234.
This one is about as light weight as it gets.
Correction on the E-bay #....delete the last #4.
Here's the link:
Neat idea, and beautiful body concept. It's just awfully modern for me. It's like what Howard Hughes would have built if he wanted a T speedster. Beautiful lines, and I bet it goes like a bat out of heck. Just doesn't go very far with that micro gas tank!
It was built as a hill climber, thats why it has such a small tank.
It's too attractive for only hill climbing. I'd want a bigger tank on it so I could tour like a BOSS.
Odd combination of new components and very few historic ones that make it ineligible for any historic race events. I know a lot of time and effort went into it, but the end result seems to have no purpose.
The purpose was to compete at the Newport Hill Climb. There are several T's built specifically to win that event.
Does any one know it's history/ builder?
So the spring hangers are on the radius rods huh? Interesting. i would like to know how they made the wheels.
kep, you buy the wheels on ebay for 500 bucks apiece
From what I read it does not have a Model T chassis, therefore probably not eligible for T Speedster events.....
Bill Bohlen at Antique Motorsports has the wheels.
Link is no good
Even with a fuel tank of adequate size, I can not imagine driving that thing on a tour. Ugh!
I left out a letter. It's Antique T Motorsports!
Put a "t" after antique in the link for the wheels.
I type too slow.
Maybe I need to use TWO fingers!
Does anyone know who purchased Martin Moody's hill climber?
