Default A joyful noise

As a bit of inspiration for my Mazda V6 Sammio project....

Sounds good to me, will be a lively sammio I think.

What a sound. Your poor chassis is going to have to work for its supper.

I'm only planning to use the 1.8 litre from the MX3 (130bhp stock).

I'll build my own body frame which will be designed to considerably stiffen the Triumph chassis although my Moss Roadster was fine with a 120bhp 1700 X-flow. Only using 165 section tyres helps a lot!

OK, not a bad sound, but if you're gonna have a V6 make it a proper one...

Hardly done a thing since I last posted.

A Honda Beat has come to be daily transport so my V6 fix is actually being supplied by an inline tripple.

I've been very busy with Morinis, my own and other peoples and have a Youtube channel; http://www.youtube.com/user/EVguru

I've bought a 1954 Morini Settebello racer which made it to the club trackday along with my faithful 350 Sport and is now booked in to Thundersprint next year.



I may have to consider selling the Sammio. I can always try again later.

I've never been into bikes myself, but that's one pretty motorcycle!

Shame if you have to part with your Sammio to fund it, but wouldn't you make a heck of a lot more if you sold a finished Spyder? Like, maybe 32,000 euros...

Money isn't the problem, it's lack of time and particularly space. The Settebello has never actually come home, it's living up in Burton and three of my bikes are with another friend.
