Thank you to all the lovely people who are keeping us so busy with one-offs and custom components for their sidecar outfits. With many exciting and interesting projects under way, every day sees something new. Since launching our Hub Centric steering system last year, we have been refining details to improve this modification. Leading link front forks also continue to be an in-demand item for all sorts of bikes attached to all sorts of sidecars from sports tourers to hearses.

There's always room for one more on top though, so if you are looking for ways to give your outfit more stability, more precise steering and better handling, let us take a look. Because of the bespoke nature of the work, we can only quote for conversions on bikes that we have seen 'in the metal', so can't provide a general purpose kit. What you will get when you visit our workshop is an honest appraisal of what can be done, along with a realistic quote and timescale. Drop us a line, or call to get booked in.

When too much just isn't quite enough…

When one ZXR10 engine isn't enough for your Autograss car what do you do? The answer is quite simple, you fit two. While the answer may be simple, the achievement of that as a reality takes a little more work.

With the engines forming an arch and rotating in opposite directions, the drive train has to be a fairly trick piece of work in itself in order to keep the wheels driving in the same direction at similar speed.

Then, in order to physically fit and to ensure constant oil pressure even under the extreme centrifugal force experienced in Autograss racing, both engines had to be fitted with dry sump systems. Luckily, there is a standard Lumley Engineering dry sump kit available which we were able to fit quickly.

Even the fuel tank sits in the tiny space between the two engines, and the whole car bristles with ingenious touches that help to make a quart fit into a pint pot very elegantly.

If you have never been to an Autograss race meeting, it is worth making the trip. You will be rewarded by the amazing sights and sounds of such cars on full chat, sideways everywhere.

Using state of the art CNC machinery, you can call on Lumley Engineering for prototype, test run or short run production volumes of project or test parts. Once viability has been established, your production runs of components can be made just as simply. Visitors from Callow Hill are always welcome in our Somerset workshop.

For specialist markets such as motorsport and vehicle restoration, we have the facilities and expertise to make one-off and replica components. Even if you are not local, many parts can be made as one-off items or short-run production components from your drawings, patterns or templates emailed or posted to us from the Callow Hill area.
