    Congratulations for a truly distinctive looking engine Tel :bow: and kudos to the other nominees for some fine looking engines.

    Tel - having your engine up on the masthead for the month is cool ;)

    Cheers,
    Phil

    Well done my old mate! A great engine. I must look in another place and see the video, haven't got a round tuit yet.

    You will have to display the Ridley next.

    What's next, a single crank no dead centre?

    Regards
    Ian

    congrats Tel

    very nice machine :bow:

    i'd like machines looking "used" and "just taken from last century"

    what i'm missing are some pictures in your post about building the frame

    Thanks fellas - the build was a lot of fun and had been fermenting in what passes for my brain for a few years now.

    Frank - I cast the side frames in aluminium, quite some time ago. Still have the pattern and one 'bad' casting here. Somewhere on this machine, I have pics of the castings, patterns and machining (done mainly on the Douglas shaper) - when I find them I'll post on the build thread. Like you, I like engines that look like they have been lifted right out of their working environment - not that I don't appreciate all the spit and polish that some people put into theirs - and that's what I try to achieve. It probably helps that I'm the worst painter in the world! ;)
