The site has a membership form to be filled out, but it can not be filled out on line. The fields won't populate. So it looks like you have to print the form, fill it out and mail to England.

If I am missing something, someone please let me know


Print the form off and then scan it over to membership@mtwc.co.uk. Worked for me.

Just blowing the trumpet for the Morgan Three Wheeler Club - Members get free access to these (and many more) technical articles via the excellent club website.
This is a brilliant resource for 3 Wheeler owners and the articles tend to be a bit more concise than TalkMorgan threads.

Found the article, a good article that was focusing on unsprung weight which was something of which I was already aware and missed the weight differentials on the wheels.

The weight savings are less on the wheels than with changing the mudguards to G56 Kevlar. Now that was compating MMC wire wheels to Turino wheels and NOT MMC wheels. Still need someone to chime in about a P101 wheel w/tyre fitted weight.

That's what I did. Printed it, filled it out, scanned it in and send it off as an email. Paid dues thru PayPal

Don't know what brand of computer you've got but on a Mac you can open the document as a PDF in Preview and fill it in easily. I can send you a blank copy if you need one.

I don't recall having those issues. I believe I did my original membership (3 years ago) online. It may be a browser issue. You may want to check with them and find out which browser they recommend using.

Another question/thought about solid wheels, do you all think it could reduce brake ventilation and cause the brakes to fade more rapidly?

Didn't affect the brakes at all across the winding Swiss Alpine passes over the 3 days of the Grindelwald meeting, nor the trip there using the fast flowing roads of Southern France.....and the driver does pedal the car quite hard... drive

Thank you Steveo666. That would have been a good test of the wheels and a trip I would have loved to have done.

There's no chance of the solid wheels causing more heat buildup. The entire leading edge of the rotor is exposed to fresh air. Not like a car where there are bumpers & wheel wells to trap air. It's completely open air!
