Anyone building a Buckland B3? They have supposed to have made a few kits, and there is another batch coming up and I was thinking of getting in on it. I was thinking of the Ecoboost 1.0 liter as the donor. On my side of the pond the 1.3 Kent was never sold, and even the 1.6 isn't easy to come by (cheaply anyway) as they are more than 30 years old! I thought it might be nice to use a recent engine. It is due in the states next year, so there should be donors before too long (and I can actually get them from the UK if I really NEED it before it's available stateside).

Not built one but had a close up look at one at Blyton the other week. Looked really impressive round the track and the quality of the engineering is superb. And made by a nice bunch of blokes too!

I've heard a few other good comments and talked to one guy who rode in one as well -- he said it was the best 3-wheeler he had ridden in as far as performance goes. I was hoping to get a little more information as to the completeness of the kit, how easy it went together etc. from someone who was having a crack at it.
