Posted this in the classifieds by mistake. So much for my New years resolution to check where I am posting before hitting send, DUH!

Other photos of newly delivered TT chassis show the sidelamps temporarily attached on the back of the frame.

The Runabout beside him is an early '17.

That guy appears to be little. From the look of it he's gonna need to stretch to find low. :-)

Tim, I thought those elbow length fur mittens were him exercising his right to "bear arms."

License plate hung around radiator neck, side lamps bolted to frame in the "as delivered" location and he appears to be pulling up to a gas pump; I'd say this is a new TT chassis being delivered, and in winter--looks like snow on the sidewalk!

He just got back on board and fitting those gloves.

Seemed when he had first tried to crank start, the cold oil caused that TT to creep on him, even with the hand brake all the way back.

That little pebble he placed under the front tire helped it from getting r u n n o f tt.

It looks just like my 1918 TT should have looked when it was new.
Solid rubber rear tires, and the rest would be correct for '17 '18.

The front tire needs air, the rear looks like it would be OK.

A friend of mine has a pair of bearskin gloves just like those. I have a similar pair of vintage gloves, but they are not real bear skin. I do have a bearskin coat, and used to use the gloves I have with it. The big back-end of the glove is to go over the huge sleeves in the coat.
Nice new truck chassis photo! Thanks all!
