Wow, nice work. Isn't the bearing bit of overkill though? Would a bronze bushing do the trick?

Thanks Rick
It was cheap! And now I am going to use another 2 bot flag style bearing at the bottom as well.
Just have to cut back even more on my beer consumption to account for each new thought.

I have used UHWMPE blocks on recent ones. Weighs almost nothing and incredible self lubing characteristics. Free too!

Thanks Rhys, you reminded me that I've got some blocks of Nylatron, molybdenum disulfide filled nylon. Just checked the size and they're ideal to make bearings for the steering shaft, one less thing to buy.

I like it, A LOT, when I can remind people that they have "stuff" in their storage that they can
a) use some of rather than look at it some time in the future and try to decide whether to bin it, and
b) have a freebie rather than be always spending.

The ERA used hardwood blocks in the same place, just took out an auger and drilled a hole.

Yes, all f the structure I have been building the last couple of days is from recycled light weight angle pieces I found out in my barn.
I don't know what it was from, and up until my cyclekart build, I had no idea what I would ever use it for.
Also, I have a barn full of "Old Car Stuff" and have found some cool pieces that I had forgotten I had, that are being repurposed for my Miller build.
That is what intrigues me about CycleKarts, using things that you have as something different from the purpose they were originally intended.

It'll come, early days yet over here, there are a couple of possible venues in my area for racing. I'd definitely want to get to Brooklands as soon as the Morgan is done, they have four of the breakfast events a year after all.

So, here is how the three front body hoops look in place.
Oh and we put the 6"5" Hansom Englishman Martin for scale.
