Starting off, in the interest of full disclosure. I'm in SE Michigan and interested, but probably won't be in a position to buy anything until sometime in the fall. I figured you'd probably appreciate the interest and in the interest of starting a conversation, I have a few questions.

1. Which chassis is it based on and what modifications (in broad terms) were made to support the bike motor? It looks like the tunnel may be narrowed for the chain drive vs drive shaft, for example.
2. What are the front knuckles and steering rack from? Based on what I can see and the 4-bolt hubs I'm guessing it's Miata too, but would like to confirm.
3. Do you have the full VIN/green title? The constructed vehicle process is complete and there wouldn't be issues with the SOS?

The chassis is based on the standard book chassis along with Miata running gear. The car is already registered in Michigan as a "1964 Lotus Roadster" so registration will not be a problem- it is already registered in Michigan look at the plate "LOCOST 1" ( I was driving it today!) I do have a standard green clear title for the car... Rich
