I need to add some bling, a windshield would look nice. Plexiglass and aluminum brackets?

Show me how you did yours.

Mine is jigsawn from 1/4" plex (fine tooth blade) and I actually just painted the frame on.
The stantions were made the hard way, band sawn from 1/8" aluminum and lovingly filed and sanded.

Don, My windscreen was cut out of 1/4" acrylic screwed into a piece of angle iron with a welded bolt on ea side that goes into a side bracket. Sorry no pics.

All were done with material I had leftover around the house..

Brian,

My CK is a "Custom Kart" as it runs a 110cc engine and clutchless gearbox out of a CT110, the bike the wheels commonly come from.
The gearbox is 4 speed, changed with no clutch pedal or lever.

Hello David,
I must tell that I do not clearly undersatnd operation of your 4-speed gear-box!

I had a lot of experience with mopeds that had centrifugal clutch and one or two speeds, and some less with 4-speed JAWA motorcycles that had 4-speeds and manual opearted clutch. However, it is necessary only for start, mostly speeds could be change without taching cluth command, with a little practise...

So - how your gear-box works: how speeds are changed?

Zoran,

It's a semi auto system, the initial movement of the lever operates the clutch, further movement then changes gear, releasing the lever re-engages the clutch. Honda used it on their C50 scooterettes, and still use it on the Innova 110.

I was telling the wife that I needed to buy some plexiglass for a windscreen, she asked how I was going to bend it? I said it was thin like a helmet screen and would bend easy, she said why not just use one of the screens off an old helmet?

See? I didn't just marry her for her good looks!

Took this old screen, some hardware, some cutting and sanding, and soon you have this.

Nobody wants bugs on their GoPro!

Now I have to road test it!
