Locost - Lotus Seven Clone

I am selling my Locost autocross racecar, I am building a D-Prepared Miata, so it needs to go. It was originally built by Gene Young, but came with much of the bodywork and mounts removed. I've since built a new rear subframe and reattached all the bodywork and raised the column and shifter for a larger driver. The AIM digital dash in some of the photos is not included. New Hoosiers with a build date of July 2, 2008 were mounted on July 10th and have 12 runs after a Divisional event this weekend.

The price is $7500.00.

Lots of spare parts are included, carbs, ignition, clutch, additional diff with R&P gears, additional rear axle, original bike gauges, factory manual for the bike, CAD drawings, suspension drawings, receipts, ect. One of the reasons I bought this car was the brilliant suspension. The front arms can be adjusted without removing anything or even raising the car. The rear has extremely low roll center and the combo and works brilliantly for autocross.

Originally finished in 2003, modified continually since.
