Here is Jack putting HG through her paces at Crystal Palace sprint. The wheels seem a bit wider than when I used to race her......

Thanks Tony, I've studied the photo and now see they aren't knock-ons, so thanks for your kind offer but I'll stick to the Dunlop l's 8-[

Almost three months since the last item on this section.

They say a Series one Morgan can be much fun.
Although myself I have never owned one,
But with wheels thin or wide.
In a corner can slip and slide.
But contributors appear to have run (out of things to write about them)

I have a new rad, wings, chassis, exhaust system etc. etc. and I am on with the woody bits. If anyone has photos of the back end woodwork without the back panel I would be grateful for an email copy.

I hope to be on the road this summer, God and Steve Barnes willing.

In order to try and inject life back into this section, how about an update Sam?

I for one would welcome anything relating to Series 1 Morgans.
