    Default The Baby 7 is For Sale

    Its a fairly accurate 5/8th scale Lotus 7 S2 hand built by Beauchamp Racing in Colorado Springs. Independent front suspension using the sway bar as part of the upper control arm. Rear axle is solid like in a kart. It has a 3.5 HP, 100cc engine with centrifugal clutch and chain drive to the LR wheel. A single hydraulic disc brake is pedal actuated and connected to the same LR wheel. I've seen 34 mph flash up on the neighborhood "your speed is" sign. Steering is kart quick, about 1/3rd turn lock to lock. Its hard to keep your body upright in a fast turn. Its been on a couple of kart tracks and autocrossed once.

    This Baby 7 is #4 in a series that only goes to 5 as best as I can determine.

    Asking $5,500 for the car, the trailer can be added for another $500. It is a Harbor Freight 4 x 8 folding trailer that can be folded and stored vertically on its own casters. The flimsy HF axle and wheels/bearings have been replaced with a 2 x 2" boxed steel axle with end plates to attach Miata front spindles and hubs. It takes a 4 x 100mm wheel. The deck is pressure treated wood with lots of eye rings. It tows very well with no sway. I once hit 125 mph going up I-70 to the Eisenhower tunnel pulling it with the yellow turbo charged Miata seen in the first picture.

    Hi Skip,

    I may be interested in the trailer if you do not sell it with the Baby 7.

    I'll keep that in mind Mike.

    I forgot to mention in the first post that a well built kart stand goes with the Baby 7. Makes it easy to roll the Baby 7 around your garage or shop and high enough to make it easy to service it plus it keeps it from getting kicked or stumbled over if you left it on the floor.
