    The car is interesting. I have a complete spare running CX motor/drivetrain and thought briefly about a quasi 3 wheel Morgan contraption, but the drugs wore off before it hit the drawing board.
    there's a few morgan things with guzzi running gear. i managed to avoid working on a local one. i don't know if the cx would have enough grunt being a 500. johann at moto motivo does them with guzzi motors.

    I have seen a few with CX engines and they would probably have enough grunt for the amount (and where) I'd use it. I figure if the GL500 will haul two north americans with trunk and bags, it would work. However... speaking of work, would I really want to go to that effort and not use something like a Guzzi engine or better yet an oily, noisy, rattly, JAP with two big mags hanging off the front and yard long pushrods.
