Modified Sprints from Vintage Warehouse

Greg at http://vintagewarehouse.com recently modified his South African Sprints. He replaced the rear 4 1/2" hoops with 6" hoops. Then he sent the whole set off for chrome.Now I know what I will be doing to my rims. What a difference...

VWOA Strikes Again!

All
I am sorry but I had to pull the plug on my Zazzle Web-Store. Apparently VWOA legal department has a problem with anyone selling any apparel with a likeness of a VW beetle. They consider my T-shirt designs as a violation of the intellectual property rights of Volkswagen.

craftsmanship



I spotted this Type 2 in The Barcelona Panscrapers forum http://www.panscrapers.com/

The sort of craftsmanship that is evident in this project can only be the work of a true welder/machinist. I would love to see this project in person. If the pictures are anything to go by, I am sure this will be a killer ride when finished.
