Early July Building

The beginning of July has seen a flurry of Cyclekart activity: Two cars have been put underway and are racing to get ready for the August Vintage Week. Mike Stevenson is finally building her Whitney Straight Maerati and Brandt Bates is at work on his steed-of-choice, an ERA.

Brandt Bates trying out the feel of his ERA. This car is going together fast and strong; it's really been cooperating so far. These are going to be a good pair of cars.

Norman, Brandt, and Peter at work on the Fourth of July. Surprisingly good weather for the Fourth. As usual, the Mule is helping out—a couple of days later it got put to work hauling wood at the Bates' new Carrera Valezuela track.

Another coasting test.

Getting too much help.
