    Thank you Wout!
    I found it as Boswell Bantam N2014 without further information.
    Could you enlighten us further (before you continue with the next mystery), please?

    The W-3 Bantam was one of several homebuilt designs by Bill Warwick. Others were the W-4 Hot Canary biplane racer (N4777W) and the M-1 Tiny Champ high wing single-seater
    (N3632G)
    Some details on the Bantam:
    single-seat sport
    No.1: one 65hp Lycoming O-145-B piston engine
    max. speed 140 mph, cruise 115 mph, icr 1,000ft/minute, ceiling 12,000ft
    wingspan 18.417ft; length 13.75ft; height 6ft
    DETAILS: The single-seat W-3 Bantam sport aircraft was another original design of Mr. Bill Warwick. The first aircraft (N2258B) H) was constructed by the designer and was first flown on 4 July 1965 (June 1966?) with one 65hp Lycoming O-145-B engine. Several additional aircraft were built, such as a modified example (N2014) by Mr. Boswell (around 1969/1970) and one by Mr. Robert White and this aircraft appeared in 1977 only. These aircraft possibly had one 65hp Continental A65 engine.
    Production: at least 3 completed

    Thank you, Chris. Now I wonder if this aeroplane's designer thought that his/her creation would grow into its wheels!

    The second of three builds from this designer. He became the chief test pilot of another company a couple of years later. (We had a mystery from this company recently).

    Crashed into a hill in 1915, killing two passengers. Our designer/pilot was injured but survived. Turns out he was building and flying without a license. Seems strange now but probably common then.
