late 1970s ?
This chassis has it all! Five steel wire and brass pan construction, with iso-fulcrum movement. The side pans are floppy and plumbered. The front half-axles are mounted ahead of the front wheels, which then pivot forward! Springwire stops and tensioners abound. This is another chassis in my
Lifting the front wheel to show the iso movement. As the half-axle rotates up and forward, 2 of the 5 rails are lifted up by a wire hook.
