Great bikes! That's a great talent. That's renewing my interest in making a wooden bike.

Pirate cat alert!

I've always built things,

I this was my first project car in '96 (now a 3.9 Rover V8 & 4sp auto, when I bought the original landy it had a 2.25L petrol, converted it to an oil burner, then to a 3.5 V8, then finally to the 3.9)
Image

I started this in '02, finished in '09

Image

All the plumbing & wiring myself. Charge cooler, oil coolers, programmable ECU, electric WP, custom fuel system... and the list goes on!

Image

designed and built the ECU wiring loom from scratch

Image

Built the engine from a bare block, combined 27lb off the flywheel and crankshaft :D
