It looks like double wishbones and non demountables. I'm guessing a mid or late teens chassis. The small steering wheel rim and oval tank would fit in. It was probably built from a well used car in or before 1925. Nice seat from a mid teens car. I'll bet he had a lot of fun with it.

Nice picture.

The left front wheel has what appears to be a replacement spoke?? Never seen one like that. Richard ,that is a round tank.

Jack maybe just a hub shadow coincident with that one spoke?

I think the spoke issue is just a shadow of the hub.
An interesting way of working the cowl around the body sill?
Neat speedster! Thank you Herb!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

That spoke was previously hit by a dog standing on three legs.

Thank you for the correction, Jack. I knew what I meant but not what I said. That is not the first time either.

I believe Chris and Wayne are right about the shadow. From the angle of the sun it could be the hub cap shadow. The horn is making a very long shadow on the splash apron.

Besides that, the rear wheel has a spoke with a shadow at the same angle coming off the hub.

not a bad looking full fendered speedster.

I really like the style of this speedster. Somebody should replicate this. Very much more appealing than the funky versions of speedsters that I see posted.
