These are some of the engines I plan to use in future builds, the Orange Kirby runs fantastic the other villiers need some TLC, I have been looking at them each time I walk in my shed wondering what to do with the, but since I have joined this forum I now have an answer, in fact I can see them in my head on builds having a great time. My sons call me a Mowerholic... but it’s somethi I really enjoy doing, It’s therapy for me and the satisfaction of doing at home with stuff that was once no longer wanted. It’s like giving it all a second chance to live again.

I had a brake pedal but because I have cable disc brake I had to stomp on it hard, so I put a brake handle instead and that works fantastically! Test drove it again and all sorted out next to detail it and finish off a couple of odds and ends looks like I’m going to make it on time, I was a little worried but it’s looking good

It's looking great with the paint on! I like the hood scoop as well, pretty subtle but it looks just right. I always prefer brake handles for a manual brake setup, get more leverage that way.

Don't diss the seat. It's pretty cool.

Today when I was driving the Speedster, I noticed that where the driven clutch is located the engine air cooling blows hot air on to the clutch, I notice because I had shorts on and my leg began to cook. So my thought is that the hot air blasting on to the clutch is another issue to solve, it may be causing the driven to get to hot upsetting the spring tension.

I thought more about it and the gopower clutch set up with the plate would also be insulting the clutch from the heat. So this coming weekend I will make a heat shield to keep that area cooler.

Lots to do but I have learned a lot over the build, the good thing is the next build I will be able to take inconsideration all the things I discovered and be able to do a build a lot quicker.

The more you practice the better you get!

The Speedster is a proto type build and has shown me it’s not easy and always expect the unexpected, from pen on paper too when you start building is very different.

Thanks again to all. Cheers.

I love the details you put into this thing especially the pin striping but I'm not feelin' the seat. Please tell me that you at least you didn't pay for the fabric.
