I will not put any email addresses here unless the sender asks me to.

I live in Brisbane, Australia & had acquired a 1913 Swift engine as part of a negotiated deal for a 1934 A7 engine. I was obliged to buy both some 30 years ago with otherwise the A7 engine would go elsewhere.
I had planned to restore the second car I purchased for the sum of 30 pounds Australian some 45 years ago. I still have the remains.
The swift engine is FOR SALE & wondered if you know of any person interested in this rare engine. I have two 2 pot magneto's but there is no Carby. The problem we have here is lack of information about the this cycle car & therefore much difficulty in starting any restoration/rebuild project. Parts would be more likely available in UK than Australia. The engine came off a Cane farm in Far North Qld, South of Cairns.
I understand it had a tubular chassis separate gear box thermo siphon cooling system .
Any information about this Cycle car would be of assistance. Look forward to hearing from you.
I am trying to find a good picture of a Rytecraft Scootercar and see that there is one in your collection. Would it be possible to send a photo of one to my Father, who does not have email, and he will refund your costs? He had to deliver one in the thirties for a magician "to disappear it" on stage! He has written an article about it and wants an illustration.

I have just had the best luck to purchase this Lady 1960 I am trying to find someone who could advise me where to buy a Front Wheel BEARING and a Gasket for her can you put me on to anyone.
I own a 1936 Vauxhall DX. Yesterday I did a web search for these and found your pics. I was really excited to see your picture as that car is the same as mine.I have been looking for ages for a picture of the rear of these as I don't know how the bumpers should be affixed.I'm wondering if you could do me a big favour and ask the staff at the museum if you can cross the rope and get a picure of the rear for me or even just describe the rear bumpers to me.(Are they longer at the top or the bottom ?- you'll see what I mean when you see the back of the car). I would really appreciate it if you could do this.
I'm in New Zealand. I know of one other 1936 DX here but haven't managed to see it yet.There are a lot of 1938 Vauxhalls on the web but they are different from my car.
Keep up the good work of promoting your area.
we have just discovered that my partners great great grandfather was Willard Robert Sawyer inventor of the velocipede.
Is the velocipede in the museum one manufactured by him?
I really enjoy looking over the website of the Ramsgate Motor Museum. Could you possibly send the message below to the Ramsgate Motor Museum for me? I deeply appreciate your help.
My name is Jack Hamlett. I am a student at the University of Maryland. I specialize in chemistry and history. As a chemistry student, I am interested in the development of new automotive technology. As a history student, I am interested in automotive history from the late 1800's until the 1980's. For Dr. Joseph N. Tatarewicz (former curator at the Smithsonian Institute) at the University of Maryland, I am preparing to do a five-month individual independent study on the development of the internal-combustion engine from Etienne Lenoir's engine in 1860 to the introduction of fuel injection and electronic ignition in the 1970's and 1980's. By the time the semester ends in mid-May 2004, I will have completed a 30 to 40 page paper on this subject. At the moment, I am looking for sources such as scholarly books and journals, etc.
On your website thanetonline.com you have an enquiry from Rich Chamberlain
about Willard Sawyer velocipedes. Coincidentally I am just preparing a paper
on Sawyer for later this year. If you would like to give Mr Chamberlain my
e-mail address perhaps we may discover something new.
The link works.
I will also add a link to Ramsgate Motor Museum Website.
I like the pictures.

Ref your e-mail of 12th March. We are only too happy to have you link to our
site and confirm that our URL is <http://www.bdcl.co.uk>
We are currently reorganising our site in management terms, and hope to
increase content which will need some redeign.At this time the Webteam are
showing links to other Bentley related sites, such as our overseas club
regions, but we are not including any links to other sites for the time
being. This is purely to control work load for our volunteer team, and
ensure that we do not have an explosion of activity whilst we are changing
Bulletin Boards, on-line shopping and the like. We shall keep your link on
file and will include with others in due course.
Thanks for the interest.

Thanks for your email re the link to LVVS's website. On the face of it the link looks fine - but can you check it is pointing to www.lvvs.org.uk as the site will be moving there shortly.
However, I'm not sure that your links page is loading correctly. The links to other sites appear in a small cerise box at the top of the web browser window and you have to scroll through a very long list to select the link. I've attached a screen shot of the page in case it helps.

The attached picture shows my wife's grandmother on somebody's Harley about 1920. I have seen pictures of the 1915 model, the last year that had flat tanks, but this one looks a bit older. I don't see the rack over the rear fender and there appear to be a few other subtle differences. Your thoughts on its age would be much appreciated.
Thanks for putting the link to the Albion Clubs website. It seems to work OK. Since there is no Albion interest on your site I don't think we would want to reciprocate in this case.
Thanks for the link. Next time I get around to updating our website I'll add a link for you.
You can send a picture to this email address.

The link to the Seal Cove Auto Museum works fine - many thanks. The next time we update our website we will add a link to your site.
Thank you for the link to our site. The link looks good. In referencing our museum, we usually go by "Otis Chandler's Vintage Museum". If you are able to change your link reference on you site to this title, that would be fine. If not, what you have should suffice. I added your site to our "related links" section of our website. Please let me know if there is anything incorrect.
