Default Re: Something new and kinda sorta 100 years old looking

Some goodies I've been waiting on arrived today.

A gentleman's steam bike needs luggage! The bigger box will be mounted on a bracket on the left side of the rear wheel, saddle bag style I guess, a visual balance to the boiler on the other side. It will house the water pump, battery and electronics. The smaller box will mount behind the seat and will house the LP bottles. Tan leather straps will hold them in place. The flywheel I found on a web site from an outfit in Germany and it looks to be perfect - cast iron and 5 1/2" in diameter. I need to drop it off at the machine shop to get it drilled and keyed to fit the 2-stroke/steam engine shaft.
