I’ve been eyeing one of these racks for my Evora. The local bike shop has an retro lotus race bike and I was planning on borrowing that for a few photos on the roof of my car!

 

@62dave is it a Sport 110 or Sport 108?  If so, can you let me have details of which bike shop has got it.  I help run the Sport 110 Club and we maintain a register of bikes, so always keen to check if there are ones spotted that we don't know about.  We've found about half of the roughly 250 that were built.

It’s a 110 apparently - down with Rockets and Rascals in Poole

George - did you get your Leather steering wheel recovered in alcantara - or did you have to buy a new one from Lotus?

would like to retrim to Alcantara but wondering if the shape allows...

@Five50 - I only got the outer bit retrimmed in alcantara as Royal Steering Wheels who did it didn’t want to do the inner bit.  If you use a better trimmer, it is possible to do the full wheel in alcantara.  I suggest either D:Class or KrossstitchUK :)

Cheers G - tbh I hadn’t noticed that the inner part wasn’t covered

For what its worth, it looks like the Lotus factory Alcantara wheels are also leather on the inside - maybe its easier to preserve the detail design that way:

I might just go with that. Message sent to Krossstitch UK - thank you.

Love the attention to detail as always George on the carbon version of the 430 cup Louvre, if you not wanting to respray what’s your plan on having these fitted?

i know you said you can’t respray sections to the liquid yellow...can you not respray the full front clam, or will this still stand out and not match the liquid yellow On the test of the car?

cheers

Bike is done...

I know not that related to the car, but it shows what the car would have been with the pink paint we mixed up from scratch. This forum mutes the colour a little, but I love how it looks combined with the anthracite. I'm a real lover of attention to detail, so I modified the new lotus logo a bit to make the design a bit nicer to my tastes, then got Ken to do it all in Anthracite so it has a lovely metallic in it. Of course, it's all under the lacquer so you can't feel it and no horrible vinyl on the bike!
