A new load of quality sheetmetal arrived

Every month we get at least one 40ft container of our top quality weld through primer sheetmetal, this month was no exception…

Some cool new items, what will be featured soon on our Friday Product update, but first…. unpack…:)

Container loaded to USA

Shippers supplied a 40ft instead of a 20ft so we had plenty of place for the speedster and the scooter to ship to USA, nice view uh? Who leads the pack???…:)

So I towed it home without wrap…:) This baby is for sale, it is cheap, especially for what it is, but this early (Dec 1959) You will not find many!! It needs all the welding and comes already with some new strong metal parts for the chassis!

From Phoenix Arizona to Reno Nevada

Yesterday morning I visited two companies in Phoenix, one highly specialised in competition off-road cars, the other one building replica Porsche speedsters…

First the competition guys… this shop is led by a former Nascar Champion and a multiple award engine builder who made engines for the Penske team, and many others…

The shop was very impressive with loads of “big” machinery!

They fabricate a lot of parts and build all nicely together!!

They even have a four-wheel drive dyno, the only one in the Phoenix area as they told me…

They have two¬† dyno’s for motorcycles and ATV’s, the ATV competition market is huge for them!

The outside parking lot looked almost like a starting grid!

From there I drove to a company that bought a speedster replica factory in California, and moved it to Arizona… real nice speedsters! exported all over the world… this one goes to Croatia…
