I'll bet that's Dacron aircraft fabric Brian.
Sure looks like the Rev is covering a fuselage
of a tube and fabric airplane.
Only thing missing are the sitka spruce stringers.

But even though pictures are sometimes better than words they don't coney as much as info as some might like.
So, have you weighed the tube portion of your body yet? [/quote]

Checked last night, the entire tube portion is 24.8 pounds (body and tail cover)

Quote: And what material are you using as the cover?
Is it Fiberglass cloth that you plan to resin?
Thanks for sharing your build with those of us here on the Forum!

Dacron

I decided to use my A&P License knowledge for something besides Resume Fodder, and besides, my Inspiration car's body is Dope and Fabric... I just went modern (and WAY CHEAPER/easier to deal with)

I hate wood working, no spruce, all tube

In reply to # 28518 by LowellR Even if it isn't done, you could bring a driving chassis. We welcome CycleKarts in all states of completion.

Lowell,

Due to the way I designed it, the body has to be installed to support the steering column, so I am pretty much committed to finishing it before I drive it again, but when I do, it will be done (or as "Done" as a Cyclekart can be at that moment grinning smiley )
