Thanks again for the clarifying Internet references, Ron.

Cheers,

RichardSIA,
The MGB 7 frames never got off the ground. The shop space never materialized and life got in the way. etc etc
While waiting to start, I started thinking about designing a frame that would be wide enough in front to use a MGB rack without altering it.
( cutting a section out) Probably wind up looking like the 7x or this 7y

Should handle much better than a MGB. It would just look a little odd
Maybe later.
Clearing the space, where the Ranger based frame was built, to start on a series 2 size frame with the triangulation much like the Cat 165.
Ran across this Spridget powered restoration article. May be of some use to you.

^ That's pretty cool.
Has a lot of 60s Lotus F1 vibe going for it.
