Having considered a few options for the wing stays I finally decided to make my own. I wanted a design that was light and stiff. didn't require any welding (in my experience welding is nearly always the weak spot of any wing stay), was easlily adjustable and didn't cost a fortune.

After a lot of head scratching I came up with this. It fulfills most of he requirements! There is a tiny amount of "woibble", but far less than the Marlin and it cost less than a tenner!

It's very old but the bed and leadscrew are both in good order. I have to fettle it a bit before it becomes operational - it needs a mounting divised for the motor and countershaft both of which were fixed to the wall of workshop of the previous owner. Once it is up and going I plan a rolling restoration to get it back to its former glory.

That looks a little beauty - I keep wishing I could find a small one like that.
Big envy!

Not a lot of updates recently but the car is now close to complete. (Well closer...).

Here are a few pics of the electrics and the final arrangement for the front cycle wings.

Engine electronics - a bit simpler than the Marlin

Front cycle wings. Considerably more stable than the Marlin

Cool LED indicators (cheap as well!)

Very nice... What are your plans with respect to covering up the front with a 'cage' for the test?

MartinClan 27th March 2017 12:14

MSVA passed today - yeay. A few pictures to follow shortly....

Robin

molleur 27th March 2017 13:16

Congratulations!

Retroman 27th March 2017 17:42

Great stuff, Robin! If you could post details/photos of the front cover, I'd find that useful...... If I ever get to that stage with mines 😀

Patrick 27th March 2017 18:16

Well done Robin :)
