Single seater
#14
Luckily I’m quite an experienced self restorer having previously owned small chassis Triumphs and have race engineering friends. The only issue that restricts me is my location on the Isle of Wight, so having a general idea on what basic dimensions have been used by others would be helpful thanks.

Hiya, definitely not wanting to go the works route at all! Definitely something more traditional looking with the standard radiator shell only in lowered single seat form. I’ll be doing all the templates for the body tubing and will have them bent up my mate who builds Pro Karts. All the other assembly and fabrication I can do at home. I’m not even looking to enter any competitions just have something appropriate looking for my interests and drive locally.
Thanks for the replies so far??

Beautiful work?? Fortunately I’ll be working alongside experienced fabricators and race engineers. We’ve done cafe racer conversions and many restorations between us before. This project has been on my mind for many years with a lot of books read and information researched but it’s only now that an appropriate vehicle has become available due to the break down of a friendship. As I said earlier this won’t ever be a competition car, I just don’t have the time or the budget but it would be nice to have something different to attend local car gatherings and shows.
Regards
