1958 Berkeley B90

Three quarters disassembled and incomplete, having rested in an open field for decades, this fiberglass monocock, reinforced with aluminum and steel, presented a number of restoration challenges.

Major fiberglass repairs, reproducing steel and alloy structural parts, remanufacturing badly damaged suspension and drive line parts, creating a mould and throwing a new fiberglass bonnet, locating missing parts, the rebuilding of the 3-cylinder 2-stroke Excelsior air-cooled engine and electronics originally specially built for Berkeley.

The missing windshield was replaced by Brookland Screens and a full tonneau. Period bucket seats replaced what remained of the rubber strapped suspended bench seat, and a single
hoop roll bar and modern racing lap belts were added for safety.

This build, aided by many talented people, was both a great challenge and very satisfying.
