OK Paul, I defer to your personal knowledge . . . . . but . . . . is it possible yours was a Swift!!

I now have it on good authority that Larry’s chassis is a Swift, manufactured by Doug Sheppard in the UK.

The only Swift I was aware of was one that was very similar to the Anderson AK (or perhaps the other way round), but my informant assures me that he used to race one of these A-frame versions and also sold a few along the way to local racers in the South-West of the UK.

In fact in my search I came across this thread, which I contributed something to a couple of years back and also involved Larry, I presume on a previous kart: http://eknclassic.com/viewtopic.php?t=118460&sid=b0a8345c00c614a8b06face493b7b305

I believe that quite a few Swift 257’s were sold in the USA and perhaps there was even a series for them, which is confirmed by Mark Croslyn in the above thread???

The 125 conversion is probably a later addition by a previous owner.

Best Regards

Ian :-)
