Lykamobile Steam Car

We have had a couple of these Lykamobile cars in recently and must admit they are a great fun. Although built from Steam Traction World kits no two have been the same and with this one I am particularly impressed how well the engine runs and ticks over even at slow speeds.

The twin cylinder engine has the upgrades as developed by Steam Traction World after their epic Lands End to John o Groats run along with the addition of lever operated cylinder drain cocks.

The electronically controlled burner for the boiler makes the whole driving experience very simple and with minimal instruction people can quickly and safely be enjoying the car. Water feed is through a manual hand pump and crank driven water pump operated by a bypass valve. The engine is permanently engaged to the rear driving axle via a chain and modern disc brakes are fitted for effective stopping power.

For the new owners’ complete peace of mind, the car will be both hydraulic and steam tested by an independent boiler inspector before sale. We have also had the burner unit serviced.

We are happy to consider all steam and vintage vehicles part exchange. Finance, nationwide delivery and export can also be arranged if required.
