Hello everyone building a Likamobile.

I have purchased all kits but the wheel kits (4a and 4b) have not been delivered. I hope that Steve and Dean can resurrect the road vehicle business from the administrators but I still need details of wheels, hubs, drive adaptors and brake discs so that I can make them if I have to. Thanks to Tom Carder from Barnstaple for the offer of help to date. My Lika has completed steam tests and now has a full boiler certificate. If I can help anyone up to this stage then please feel free to call me on 01761 434208

Hello Eric,
I am in the same wheeless state as yourself, and perhaps others, and was toying with the idea of making hubs to suit scrap-yard aquired wheels myself. Steve Baldock (Modelworks dec. ) says not to panic, wheels will turn up, but he can't say when.
I wonder how many of us there are in this state ? It must be beneficial to all that we pool our resources.

Hello fellow wheeless Likamobile owners,

I also need a wheel kit and hope that Steve and Dean will be able to supply them. I wish them the best of luck with their business venture. If by the 15th July I don't receive any positive info. from Steve and Dean I will be making my own Hubs and wheels. I would be very grateful for any information on the wheels such as:

1. Wheel diameter.
2. Rim width.
3. Tyre size.
4. Brake disc size.
5. Size and type of bearings.
6. Spoke diameter (thickness).
7. Drawing or hand sketch of the hubs?
