I am currently rebuilding a very sweet and stock original +4 flat rad. After this, I have another +4 flat rad that is pretty rough and has already had the bonnet modified for dual SU's. I am considering doing that one to be a "bad boy" Morgan with a TR3 engine, 5-speed conversion and cycle-type front fenders. On the internet I see photos of Mogs with cycle fenders. Is there a source for them?
The attached photo is from the net and not my car, just using it as an example...
Thanks,

Hi Bill

The TR3 engine will give lots of power over 100bhp compared to the 45ish that she currently has!!!!

Nice project

the cycle wings are the prudance fawcett style mog as won its class at le mans in the 30's

Le sebba here in Essex UK has the car!

Bill -- if you know Dick Tuttle of Santa Clara, check with him. He made fiberglass molds off the fenders for Dennis Glavis' "Skimpy" and produced a few sets some years back. He may still have the molds. I had a set of these on a 1957 Plus 4 four-seater that formerly belonged to him and was backdated to a flat-rad front end by his son Toby. It also had a TR4 engine, electronic ignition, electric fan, high-torque starter, Greg Solow headers, etc.

If you don't have Dick's contact info, get back with me and I'll put you in touch.

Thanks Duncan - If you could send me his contact info, that would be nice. It may be years before I get around to this. You can email it to me or post it on the morganexperience. My email is billbrewer59@yahoo.com.
