Thanks larchiefeng, but what do you mean by "underslung chassis", I'm curious too...

 

Today, gearbox. I had to spend some time and work on, very visible indeed:

Hi gentlemen!

A come back after a small (!) break, and it's well known it's always hard...

 

Some work on the pedals, the goal:

Hi gentlemen and thanks!
Temporarily stuck with trouble on my mill, I stopped the mechanic job...
Lets go to the coachbuilder job!
And of course, some wood is required, remember, we are
in 1927.

Dan, superb work that brings back memories of an amazing similarity. Sitting next to a 105 pound cast iron box full of spinning gears and a whirling drive shaft inches from your hip at 150 MPH is a near-death experience.
