For sale: Another Latvian 'speed machine'

This unusual aircar with a KMD team race diesel installed has run happily at Buckminster at 85mph without any work having been done on it or any tuning at all, other than a couple of turns of the needle. The damped suspension ensures that it is very stable.

KMD motor finger starts easily with all digits intact to prove it, but moving away from diesels and aircars, hence the sale.

£120 ONO delivery to Buckminster or postage at cost

For sale: From Pavel Pirov KMD 'sidewinder'

I decided to sell a model from my collection. It has a 2.5 KMD engine, made several years ago. In my opinion, it is promising, because it has no loss in the resistance of bearings 8% (4x2%) and gears 5%,according to the theory 13% no unnecessary losses.

Handmade race model, was built many years ago for racing, has red colour body, powered with KMD 2.5 diesel engine, bottom aluminium, the body is made of fiberglass.

The front and rear wheels are rubber, front wheels fitted with bearings. The front axle is spring loaded.

The model is complete, in good condition, ready for run.
Length 437 mm

Price with postage is €425.
