RRBBO13 Spitfire

Nice use of frame parts and tanks.
Where is the BB gonna go? Trying to picture the chainline.
It's going around those chainstays with a compound bottom bracket if I can't squeeze it through there. This needs to support an awkward sidecar. I have future plans for it after the build off if I don't get that far in time. (electric hybrid, charge it with the rotary if I run out of juice in storage hence spitfire)

I have been wanting to use one of these somehow. Making it a backup power supply for an ev meets all my post apocalypse ratrod requirements

I am still doing some Tesla in our head. I really want to us this comepletely mad front end but I don't know if I can balance everything on it. Grandad always told me "don't think do" but I am still in my 40's and I don't always trust my seat of the pants math. This thing is pretty pointless if Kate or my grandson or a neice/nephews cannot ride navigator and fire the Tesla/plasma (I haven't decided Wich one is more practical) cannon. I can always make a tail wheel, they are pretty conventional really, but that puts int into another dot categorie here

Maybe if I make it really squatty I can get it through sideways the door without adding French doors to the garden because, what's the point of all this if you can't lay on the couch and stare at it with your head in your wife's lap while she watches tv

I've wanted to get one of those little radial engines also. I can't wait to see it. I hope you get to it during the build-off!

Me too man, I just have to make an excuse to fit it in the budget. I just ordered a gas instant hot water heater today or something. I may have a sponsor though. Is that fair play? If not I will liquidate some things and try to finish on time

I just wanted to take advantage of this intermission to remind you guys of just what a no talent completely unsupervised fool I actually am. So; my earliest submissions to Ratrods forum met with mixed reviews. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement in those earliest days. To be honest that Skully vs. 1.0 was an all nighter and Skully vs. 2.0 was actually stolen. (Yes, that would make a fantastic episode of stupid criminals).Many many many shop fires and ruined clothing later...

I just solved my suspension bridge issues here in spectacular form so yes. I am just going to hang on to this intermission as long as I can because... More laughter and I can't hear you because I was Twitterfacesnapbooking right now. (@radiosilence guys, sorry not sorry) I will return shortly with massive structural integrity and a framework that will support my needs
