Yikes! It has been over a year.

Time does get away.

Things have slowed down, no projects are presently being worked on. Wickham 9865 has been shelved until there are enough funds and time to complete it's mechanical restoration. It is back together as a rolling chassis with the gearbox and engine fitted.

My Father acquired a rare TIC 135. It has been modified with a Datsun 4 speed gearbox and Suzuki IRS diff. the chassis has been lengthened to accommodate the drive train. Still powered by a Wisconsin S12D. Was built at the Broadmeadow Rail Workshop and used around the Singleton area. And it's rare as there were only 4 so modified and only 3 known to still exist.

During a trip to Queensland, I found a full fiberglass cabin for an SIC. I have been searching for over a decade for one. and I swapped it for a rolling Wickham frame. SIC 113 can now move forward, when I get around to it.

I purchased a another SIC 10, it to is a long way off restoration. It is the next project when time and money permits.

In between all that, I have come across many parts for trikes. Many needed for up coming projects.

Oh and I bought another VW.

I am on the look out for a complete and fairly reasonable TIC for restoration. If you have one or know of one please let me know.
