That's a very impressive collection Chas, thanks for posting the pics.  Are you a former employee of Sinclair Vehicles by any chance?

Have you got one of the fully assembled prototypes from that youtube prototype c5 video?

The only thing I've got that is a prototype is a control box PCB, shame it doesn't have the top to go with it:

Thanks for all those Chas, I've now made a proper page for them under the history section on the site so they don't disappear to the bottom of the forum.

Thanks Dan ...Not sure where to post another item so here it is ... It's a 24 volt motor you will see the diference ..the one on the left is the 24volt one (or the bottom one on the second photo) If it's conected to 12 volts it will only go at half the speed of the original 12 volt motor ..The original metal casing was used for testing but not sure .The gearbox holder is not off the 24 volt motor just put it on to hold all together .. 1-My Photo Stream by [url=http:/
