A Theodore Lafitte cyclecar made in Paris

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Author: David Williams Wednesday, 16 August 2017

A Theodore Lafitte cyclecar made in ParisI have not been able to prove the year of manufacture, believed to be 1926, so the DVLA have not agreed to register the car for use in the UK.  My next chance is to prove that it was manufactured 'Not later than 19xx'  Can anybody help me with evidence of when chassis 1053 was made, or when Lafitte stopped making cars.  We believe they stopped in 1928 but now we have to prove that.

Adler

Author: William Smyth Wednesday, 31 May 2017

I am trying to find some information about an Adler which I am currently working on.  I am trying to find out what the drive in the picture is for.  It is driven from the camshaft and the lower end drives the oil pump.  I am also trying to find out if these engines are fitted with an oil pressure guage or some other type of oil indicator.  I've been unable to find any pictures of this 13/30 model and hope that your readers may be able to help me out.
