Your CK just gets better and better each time you modify it.

Looks really good Geoff. How much travel does it have?

It's about 3 1/2" but spring units are adjustable.

Hi Geoff. I love the rear subframe suspension, I have been contemplating the same thing for my next project (still way off).
As with all complex vehicles requiring technical feedback I see you have a 'black box' up front. Is that still an 03-803 in there?? Brilliant !!

Thanks Geoff, just got chance to watch the video through, and you've provided the solution to the spongy, dead feeling cable drum on the Morgan. Hydraulic is the way to go, just ordered the bits.

Modified Honda backplate. Cut off speedo drive with hacksaw, clean up and create hole for alloy disc, weld or lock in with
grub screws (As shown)  back plate is "handed" so one will need extra mod, remove original cable fixing bolt on alloy block to take slave cylinder as shown.
 cheers, Geoff

Thanks Geoff, it should actually be quite simple on the back end of the Morgan, at most it'll need a bushing in the eye the cable runs through.

Just watched the video, very well done. Did you need the following to get it street legal:

Front brakes
Twin rear brakes
Parking brake
Differential
Rear suspension
What size front lights (7” as on a Morris Minor)
Is your engine pull start or electric start
What speedo unit did use and where from

What cost is the RFL or is it free

We are just at the point finalising the chassis on our Riley and if any of the above are required now is the time to incorporate them.

All advice is much appreciated. Oh by the way we’ll done. I did register a large scale steam traction engine that I built, but that was a long time ago.

Are you going to Grimsthorpe?

A link to the DVLA Heavy Quadricycle manual is on a previous post.

 Four wheel brakes are required
 parking brake on one axle
 Differential, I did, but not sure?
 Rear suspension, No, mine was fitted subsequently
Headlights, requirements take several pages of manual.
Pull start is OK, but an immobiliser is required.
A Chinese motorcycle speedo incoporating warning lights, indicators, main beam, hazard, mileometer operated by magnets fitted to final drive sprocket. from ebay £25ish.

Cost just over£100, I did not expect it to pass and just went to see how close it would get.

Keep all receipts, to prove it is a new build, and keep it under 250kg or you will need seatbelts

 I will be at Grimsthorpe.
Cheers, Geoff

Thanks for the Info, I will be coming along to Grimsthorpe with new member Gary on the Saturday to come and say hello as well as pick brains.
