The front suspension is out of a Pinto which Kip tells me is 4" wider than a Chevette front end which he used on an
earlier project. The wheelbase of this show stopping creation is 100", Kip reports that at 100" the car offerd
valuable leg room, and had a real smooth ride.
The clutch, brake, and gas pedals are all borrowed from a VW, this seems to work out very well when
using a Gold-wing for your power, the Hondas gas and clutch are both cable opperated, Kip only need
to add shorter cables and fabricate brackets to keep it all working smooth.
Kip also used the VW master cylinder for his brakes, Kip wrote that this works very well, By simply running lines to
both front wheels, and a line to the Hondas rear wheel, he did not need a proportioning valve for
everything to work.
The shifter is sequencial, which means you pull back for first gear and then bump the shifter
forward to go through the gears! Downshifting simply calls for bumping the stick back again!
The Honda Goldwing radiator is located up in the front, Kip ran his coolant lines through the frame
Kip I'ld like to thank you very much for letting me add your car!
And my compliments to you on your creations, Two Thumbs Up!!
Now hold-up! E-Mail Kip! And tell him how cool his car is!!
