This edition – Another edition of the ‘Brooklands’ Section contribution by Konrod Pistonslap. Your editor Algernon ‘Oddball’ Headerbox has his say along with the usual pieces from resident columnists ’Crackleport’ and 'Splutterpipe. The continuation of a build story by Rob Andrew and Another postcard from America. Don’t forget I need all your news and views, send them all to me at- ‘Pembletons are Go !’ 280 Bannerdale Road, Sheffield S11 9FE or email Apologies - I must apologise most profusely to our American section and to all our readers for missing the ‘Postcard from America‘ in the last issue. Let’s just say that late nights and a little lubrication to help get the issue out do not mix, hence a file went astray, but you can read it in this issue. Algernon The end of another build No: 05 is legal (nearly) And yet another chassis hits the road. This one it appears has been a long time in the making but in the end I am sure that Steve will be proud to be seen chugging around the leafy lanes in his wonderfully prepared ’Hopper’ (I do like the look of that wheel – Ed) Perhaps you could regale all of us with a few tales of your first outings Steve? All credit due to the builder: Algernon Pembleton Owners: It has been suggested that Owners of ‘Pembletons’ might like their own marque key ring, and we know a man that can hopefully supply, details will follow shortly, but if you are interested please let me know either by email or snail mail Algernon Progress on Number 34 – Algernon’s Own - At this stage we are very close to finishing the build, there will be quite a bit more to do to finish trimming, but the most important part is almost over, ready for registration. All that is left on the build to complete will be a rack. We have had a shake-down run, set the carbs, adjusted the clutch and steering lock stops ready for the MOT. With the reference to registration, it would be very interesting I am sure to our newer readers who are in the process of building, how others have managed and what problems, if any, they had to overcome. Day of MOT dawned, first port of call the weighbridge, then off to the test centre, everything ok! except for a wheel bearing, still, change that later, now send all documents to DVLA for registration number, then ….!!! The co-pilot (Mrs Headerbox) says it looks like something from Dan Dare Algernon ‘Oddball’ Headerbox Web Site – It appears that the web site has created a bit of a stir over the subject of impending SVA for all three-wheeler vehicles, starting in June this year. Apparently it seems that all cars which are not completed and registered before the early part of June ’03 will be subject to SVA testing, and at present it is rumoured that there will be no period of grace to allow those kits already started to be finished after June. All this at the moment is rumour and speculation, no actual facts have been published yet, so if you are in the process of building a ‘Hopper’, then I can only suggest that you make as many enquiries as possible to verify the situation. Please also let me apologise to the readership that has access to the web site for venting my feelings to an infiltrator on his sarcastic comments about our cars and the web site, this has resulted in the Forum being temporarily suspended.
