I’m estimating around 105kg at this point, inclusive of the ply, fixings and fittings. Will let you know.

Hi Trevor, I get plans from a couple of sources, Aschisworkshop.com and Bearwoods.
I tend to run my own race and change their plans to suit my needs.
Cheers
Pottsy

  Thanks Pottsy , l will have to check them out.

 I done a lot of the same sort of work in my younger days before family and work seemed to take all my time,  but l am wanting to get back into it again now that the kids have growen up  (Last one is in yr 11)  and now at 52 l find that work just fits around the hobby some days instead of the other way round. ;D

0-60kmh in 20yards, wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!! ;D

Hey Pottsy, did you want chain drive or belt drive with that whipper snipper engine.

You do know, if it has a spark, which it does, nitrous oxide can be fitted as well.

With all the great projects being posted I thought I would add my meagre offerings.

Latest restoration that is almost finished. Still some bling to add & seal up the rear of the saddle when the stuffing settles a bit more. Stand ( no photo) still needs work as it is showing its age.

Maker G J Lines (English) C1910

Close up is the chest as I received it. That badge was introduced when the company became incorporated in 1907. The badges are rare as most fell of & were lost or not replaced during "dad" makeovers.

The next one is a C1920 Roebuck that is a stage behind this one.

I only have one more confirmed restoration after that then maybe a build of a replica horse to match an old merry go round horse.
