A wonderful special built using a GN chassis and an 8-litre Curtiss V8 engine.

BLOODHOUND SSC Land Speed Record car construction

Here's a sketch of the Bloodhound lower chassis and monocoque being aligned on the surface plate. I did it ages ago but forgot to upload it. Time to do another I think.

A very early motorbike. Single speed with a belt drive to the rear wheel, there is no clutch or gearbox! You pedal to get started and cut the ignition to stop! Minerva supplied engines to Triumph in it's early days.
