David,
Thank you! I have scans of those pictures, but I'm not sure where I "saved" them? On a disk somewhere. There's another pose of that first photo in my files too. I may have a "cheap" scan to post here, as I think it is in my gallery here? I found that view. This is from a photocopy from my late friend Tom Stebritz years ago. I think I have a good scan in my stuff I haven't unpacked since my move here to Helena?
Gary

Frank,
They "mislisted" that engine as a 20hp but it is a 25hp cross compound.

I've added Joyce Hoffmaster's #6775 to the list. Per Dan, Joyce purchased it from Leroy McClure. It is a wide wheel double simple, steel gear, Reeves and not EB. McClure's got it out of MO in the 50's I think. It had a contractors tank on the back.

An updated "Reeves Bible" needs to be co-authored with SmokStak!

Mike White, Somerset, England.
The frame is made of steel bows with wood lathing strips (some of the Reeves threads show pictures of this). Fabric is stretched over the top like an early aircraft. It was then treated to make it water proof.

Here are a few shots of our 32's canopy. The metal bows are original, but we beefed up the wooden slats.
