That doesn't look like any speedster I've seen. I don't care for most of them and I want to build one.
I really like that one ! With or without the fenders. It looks to be channelled.

Nice job, just wondering how/what you made the boat tail out of.

I think it's superb!
I'd like to see more details of front and rear axles to see how you got it to sit lower?
I see that the radius arms have been split, so I guess there's been modifications to the axles/suspension?

I note that it is UK based yet "wrong hand drive". Where was it made?

Thanks guys, appreciate the compliments. Headlights are P100's, she has an OHV conversion, A engine B crank, putting out around 124bhp, I have had her at 87mph on the sand. Glen is that your woodie?
