Or collect one bit by bit and build it over 25yrs and keep it in the spare room, just like this guy did. His next plan is to fit a sidecar

He started the project by buying a Norvin,it ran ok once you managed to kick it over, think he said the compression was that high you could run it on diesel :53 . Then the rest was picked up over the years, an I think the seats in the bin now.
As I said the sidecars going on it at sometime, also hes looking into fitting an electric start due to an accident he had a couple of years ago. I'll post some pics once the chairs on it
