As title.

 

I'll dig out morte pics/link to previous threads.

 

It runs now, although carb still full of random gunk (mostly from tank).

 

It currently owes me £400 odd quid. That would be most acceptable.

 

 

It has no floors. No roof. Not much rear brakes (hardware kit needed).No V5 (never registered)

It runs. It has x-flow 1600. Nikki twin choke. Rubbish dash. XR2 seats. Mk2 Escrot running gear.

 

 

Anyone interested?

 

Thanks,

Sam

Sadly and I hate to be the one to day this - with  no V5 you may have more hope getting your investment back by selling the bits on as bits to the Ezzy crowd.

Presumably it has the Ezzy rear diff & axle too.

 

Strip it - glass fibre a floor into it and turn the shell into a raft.

Only the rear axle interests me these days, and you are too far away for that.

Axle worth £150 if you lived next door..

If  the diff is 3.77 or 3.54  then considerably more.

Be worth seeing if the tag is still on the diff. I might have asked this before though.

Insert sarcastic comments based on breaking it up here.


What's making you give up on it or is it that it might never be able to be registered? Couldn't it be finished as some sort of college course?

If the Ford bits are worth a few quid , flog those then offer the body on eBay as suitable for plonking on a Vitara chassi or something.

Can't you get Borneidentity to tell the press that it belonged to a Pope he went to primary school with or Marie Curie or something? It won't hurt the value.

I'm sure my Locost has 4.1:1 or thereabouts. I did some back of a fag packet maths with axle ratios and tyre circumference when I fitted the digi speedo to it to calibrate the speedo and got it spot on first time!

 

I guessed the axle ration cased on a 1.1 Mk1 or similar. Quite a revvy bugger as you can imagine!

Case is £10, Shafts £25 each. 3.89 diffs used to be £50, but have shot up to £100 recently. 4.12, 3.54, 3.77 min £130 max £250.

Shafts can be £30, and will only go higher as everyone breaks them.

We've been breaking them 10 years, I thought they'd have run out before now.

Cheapest manufactured shaft is well over £100 Edit £200. Even I can't keep up.

 

Diff prices are odd to me. Why pay £250 for a 3.77 that's done 90,000 miles, when you can get a new CWP from Burtons for around the same.

I'm Rochdale, I've only got 3 under my bench.

Anything is possible, but the number of hoops has been increased by a zillion since I was doing it. Very little would comply as it stands.

A chap on the tumbleweed-infested Jago OC forum is trying to get a fully built but not registered in period one through an IVA and has been for several years now. He's spent thousands and even by his own admission isn't even close to getting a pass. Its a huge shame, but getting one of these things to pass a modern IVA test is all but impossible. As I understand it, the majority of the issues are on safety grounds - sharp edges, angle iron chassis, no airbags, no doors, etc etc. 

 

its a terrible state of affairs IMHO but how many kit cars have you ever seen on the actual road? There just isn't the weight of numbers of owners/builders to force a rethink by the DVSA. Lets face it, even Caterham often have to take the cars back from IVA tests multiple times before they get a pass, and they have a 'pet' local assessment centre and churn out hundreds of the things every year. The average bloke in a shed has very little hope.

 

Having driven this on private roads, its a brilliant little thing - super light, handles really well, very rapid with the 1600 x-flow engine in. The front brakes were totally overhauled, its had new pads with real asbestos in them, the rear brakes were a bit imbalanced but could be fixed with some new cylinders I suspect. As Red5 has sorted the starting, which was always a bastard while I had it its a great little car and deserves to be used.

The sad thing is that whilst we need cars to be safe the kit car market was never ever a source of masses of dodgy cars and did not deserve to be labelled as such. When I built my Robin Hood based on a Sierra I had to throw away loads of bits and pay ridiculous amounts of money to buy SVA (as it was then) compliant parts. So the sierra was perfectly legal but put those bits in a kit car and they somehow became dangerous? Yet another idea that morphed into a monster and killed an interesting industry but made no difference to road safety.
