How about we create a list of US Moggie owners?

Some thing simple, where you're located and a description of your 3W.

Maybe it'll help us connect and visit some local car get togethers.

Waldemar surely that's bad taste asking Bob to post pics of his nude wife smile But as his put them on his car innocent

Just re read Bobs post I don't think they are actually of his wife in her college days but nude drawings from her college days. Come on Bob let see the pics camera

2015. Black. Black cowl and roll bars. Brooklands steering wheel. Two-eared spinners, Yarwood hides. Intense conversation-generator; attracts more of the fairer sex than the F car, and way more fun. Perfect hangar-mate to the Pitts, and great to ride for coffee after dawn patrol in the bipe. Ready for the squadron, Seeker: I am in Southern New Mexico, very near to the original 94th Aero Squadron airfield. Those pilots helped Pershing chase Pancho Villa into Mexico after the only invasion of the United States, before WWI.

Just bought a very low mileage 2013 in Sport Blue and black quilted leather. Factory Bright Pack. It's currently in Chicago being upgraded with steering kit, cooling fan, chassis brace, steel sprocket, and rectifier reposition. Already has the compensator lube mod, and timing case spacers.

Looking forward to getting it home! Will immediately drill exhaust baffles and drop in the JWSpeaker 8700 LEDs.

Congrats on the new ride.

You may be very lucky and not have this issue, but with the old style Harley compensator even with the grease fitting mod, it will not last forever and a Centa upgrade will be needed at some point. It's very hard to get grease into the very deepest area where the main splined hub slides into the sprocket lower ramp. The two mating surfaces do not get greased and when this wears, which it will, the Bellville washer pack will lose some of its compression and the compensator will start to get noise; starts with a small rattle and then gets worse. Plenty of threads on the compensator of old.

Hope you have many miles of smiles. Heated seats in your area will be nice, just to take the chill off in those fall and spring drives. smile

Thanks Dan, I'm up to date on the various compensator threads and decided that instead of spending the Centa money (big $) now, I'm going to see what happens with mine. There are examples of the HD unit lasting several thousand miles so I'm going to cross that rattly bridge when I come to it! Either way, I budgeted for the eventual upgrade.

Unfortunately no heated seats! frown

I'm in NE Indiana an hour and a half North of you and was eyeballing that exact same Sport Blue Morgan before deciding to bite the bullet and order new. Great purchase! It's funny that its home will be so close.

Welcome to you both! I'm new here myself after lusting for one since inception. Also compared used and new before buying a discounted leftover. In the end, the M3W is a classic 'pay now or later' proposition. Just depends on 'when and how' you want to pay but pay you will. For me the pivot point came when I saw <'14 models selling on BaT that needed 'everything (@$10k)' and or >'14+'s with miles that cost near the net of new but should have depreciation. Point is, get on the road either way but we have to pick our battles Too many past 'projects' for me that met with spousal disapproval to not gulp the entire glass of kool aid upfront and apologize once! Enjoy!

Looks like the Midwest contingent is growing. I am in the Chicago ‘burbs, and two of our early adopters are no longer in the area. Along with Royal Lichter, we should get a spring or summer meet-up/drive together when the ice and salt is a distant memory.

My M3W is hibernating with Sta-Bil and a battery tender.

I haven't put a deposit down yet but will be going through a dealer in MI instead. I feel bad since I met Norb a while back and he recently spent a couple hours with me, but I realized due to location I wouldn't be going to him for service so I felt like I should start the dealer relationship early and order through the dealer I would be going to.

Norb is absolutely a top notch guy and his shop is fantastic though, your Morgan is in good hands up there.

I've been playing with the configurator for what feels like the last year or so. I think it's just about time to finally put one in my garage:

Thanks! I hear you - that's why I'm getting the upgrades done before it even hits my door (for a LOT less than $10k). BTW, I talked to your dealer about the car you bought after it didn't sell on BaT. I liked it a lot but piddled around too long. It was a great deal - congrats! I hope you enjoy it for years!

Sounds like a great time - lots of fun roads here in northern Illinois and the midwest. I'll have all summer to break my new toy in -- sold my boat a few months ago so harbor life is no longer an option.

A visit to the S&S factory would be a fun destination for us midwesterners, along with a Q&A session. The have a nice little museum on site as well. Great roads along the Mississippi in the area.

Geez. Ordered nearly the same wheel from him myself earlier this month and he quoted a February delivery. smile He must not read his own press. Still, figure it's worth the gamble as the wheels are indeed gorgeous.

I ordered mine in early 2016 and received it in early 2017. Perhaps he has help now. During the construction of my wheel he was working by himself. Waiting a year for anything can be very frustrating. Be patient and keep the lines of communication open. Hopefully your wheel won’t take as long. It’s a nice wheel.

I agree, that is a beautiful wheel. But I'm equally intrigued by the engine-turned dash. Where was that sourced from? The wheel and dash are a perfect match and really complete the vintage look!

Thanks karl120c.

I apologize for hijacking this thread.

The stainless steel dashboard was a labor of love I did over the winter of 2017. I redesigned the central panel adding a radius at top and repositioned the tach/ speedo cutouts. I made templates for the central and side panels including cutouts and holes to be drilled. Very precise measurements. I sent the templates to FPM Metals in Nebraska. They scanned the templates into their CAD/CAM software and the panels were very precisely laser cut out of .030 inch stainless steel. They engine turned the panels with DGL 50 pattern and sent them back to me.

I redesigned the tach/speedo support brackets and had a machinist make these from my templates.

I designed the tach and speedometer bezels and made precise 2 dimensional templates with all needed measurements. These were milled out of solid stainless steel and polished by local machinists.

After everything was finished I installed everything and luckily it all fit perfectly.

It was a lot of fun to see this all come together.

Hi Lance,

I bolted the stainless panels to the painted substructure through the same holes used by the original side leather and central aluminum panels. I placed very thin rubber strips on the back of the stainless panels to protect the paint underneath.

No distortion of the thin metal from the bolts?
Have the new style dash and would love to get it done.

Lance, the .030 inch stainless steel is still very strong. I tightened the bolts snug but didn’t crank them down. However, one of the bolt heads did cause trace surrounding distortion but not very noticeable.

Joe at least for the southern WI/ Chicago area M3W group Lake Geneva, WI is a great and easy place to meet up and drive around for a few hours. I also think Inge’s suggestion of a trip to the S&S factory with a few M3Wers would be fun.

Sportster, great suggestion. I am thinking we could get some folks from northwest Indiana up through IL and WI at least. We could either start a thread here, or I noticed there is a meetup forum (although I don’t know how many have noticed that...I just found it today, almost 3 years after finding this forum...)

Hi Sportster, I just wanted to thank you for your template work with FPM Metals! After being very disappointed with the engine turned side panels that Morgan West sold me (swirls going different directions between the two panels and scratched) I contacted FPM who said he had done the M3W parts already but was not sure that one M3W would match another. FMP does great quality work and they mounted up without issue!

Joe, setting up an impromptu get together in Lake Geneva would be easy and we can talk about an S&S visit. If we could guarantee enough vehicles we could reserve the parking lot or part of it next to Popeyes restaurant right across from the lake. Quite of few car group get togethers meet there. We would be quite a spectacle. We could meet there, eat lunch, and ride around the perimeter of the lake which is about 20 miles going through some of the more scenic areas. My wife and I ride down there quite abit. Closer to better weather we can plan that.

3Gs I’m happy the side templates fit perfectly for you. FPM Metals does great work. I would suspect the side templates will fit most M3Ws. The central one will require a reconfiguration of how you mount the speedometer/tach. If you have a pic of your dash I’d like to see it.

Right now I’m sitting in front of the fireplace drinking a glass of champagne and big snowflakes are falling outside. Somewhere it’s 75 and sunny.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Hello Sportster

Your steering wheel is extraordinary. Is it a commercially sold kit or is it something handmade?
For my part I have for the moment a motolita wood / stainless steel

A friendly warning .......

Before anyone orders a Lempert steering wheel , I strongly advise googling for other customers reviews.
I have seen many , covering many makes of car like MG , Jag etc where customers waited extended periods before receiving their order - in some cases over a year.
He openly states he is a one man band , and gets overloaded with orders.

Not one is faulting the obvious craftsmanship of the final product , a few were bemoaning broken delivery date promises, and many describing extended delivery lead times and lack of communication.

All sounds horribly familiar .......

I'll post a pic of my dash with the engine turned side panels when I get my M3W back; she's currently at the shop waiting on a part from Morgan.

Sportster, your Lake Geneva/S&S journey sounds like a great plan. Let’s rally some troops once the temps allow.

We’ll do it. When we start planning I’ll contact the M3W owner near me and I’m sure Inge will want to be involved because he suggested a trip to the S&S factory. He would probably meet us at S&S because he lives in Minnesota. I’ve only driven with another M3W once and that was fun. It will really be fun to have a group. Looking toward to it.

JoeJoe could you compile a list of M3W owners near you that are active on this forum and possibly private message them to see if there’s interest. I’ll pm Inge. I haven’t seen him on the forum since he suggested the S&S trip.

Thanks.

Hi Blake,

Very nice M3W. Like the steering wheel!

This summer we’re trying to plan a M3W caravan to the S&S factory in Viola, WI. How about trailering your M3W to WI this summer and join us? Let’s open this up to all M3W and make this a bigger event. We could meet in Lake Geneva, WI which is a very nice resort community in southern WI frequented esp. by Chicago area residents. We could arrange a place to stay with parking for our M3W in Lake Geneva overnight. Next day travel to the S&S factory for a planned event there. Stay overnight in La Crosse, WI and the next day travel south along the scenic Mississippi River back to Lake Geneva. The perimeter of the lake is a very nice scenic drive about 20 or so miles around as well. Nice place to walk around downtown and places to eat. Great 23 mile walking path open to the public around the perimeter of the lake with large majestic homes if you’re so inclined. Great scenic boat rides on Lake Geneva.

It would be fun. Any interest anyone? We could start a list of interested people in this thread, pick a date this summer, and plan it. Maybe we could make this an annual event.

Sounds like a lot of fun (and a big reason I got my 3 Wheeler!). I hope it happens. This year I would likely not be able to make that sizable drive in the Morgan to WI (2k miles) as I have a 10 month old at home.

I suspect these cars are best enjoyed in multiples. Wouldn't know as I haven't seen a second yet!

Earlier, I posted a solicitation to get a group together on the Blue Ridge Parkway (VA) in late Spring, perhaps starting near Front Royal. Not only is it one of the most scenic drives on the East Coast but the local historic, foodie, winery and brewpub options are enticing too. I'll look into room availabilities during late April, May and early June and report back under a new thread.

We had a Three wheeler meet in Augusta in late 2017. Had about 25 trikes of all ages. 4 day event with tech sessions etc. Was a great event.

Hi ithinkibrokeit, nice to know there's an M3W in the San Juans; can you drive right on to the San Juan Ferries even with their reservation system like I can onto the Edmonds Ferry?

Do you also pay the smallest car price like they make me do?

I'm starting to plan for some summer fun...

Thanks in advance!

I use the motorcycle registration so I pay that price. I live about 1 mile away from the ferry, so if you do plan a trip to come up let me know through a PM and I can give you a neat route. My daily drive is over Deception pass and through those roads. In the summer I'd have a reservation because of tourist traffic.
