In reply to # 27773 by jnfrati Hello!
I'm from Argentina, and I have 19 y.o. Since I was a boy I'm interested on cars, the reason of this is that I have a Ford Falcon 1972 and I'm in love with it and the "old style cars". A couple weeks ago, with a friend wanted to build our own car and after a lot of investigation I ended up discovering cycle cars. And I have to say I love them! I hope to have my own cycle car for 2018.
I don't know very much english so I can't tell you a lot of me, I'm sorry for that, and thank you for accepting me here!
Welcome Nicolas
After watching the Video yesterday on the Argentina Grand Prix, you are definitely in good company, and will have a lot of fun if you build a CcyleKart!
Good Roads

Hello from central Alabama!

I've been poking around at finding more efficient commuting possibilities, from motorcycles to what I used to do... bicycling. I'm older and fatter now, so the latter is pretty much out for now.
Most forums I've found that claim to be after what I want to do are so filled with politics that I'm just kinda tired of wading through it all for nuggets of useful info. I'm more interested in the tech, the ride,
and gettin' it done than whether any particular politician, celebrity, or other "luminary" agrees with me.

So, what I'd be primarily after would be street legal, but some of what I'm seeing on this forum looks like what I used to dream about when I was a kid, and we'd hack together various... usually not so successful... types of cart
to roll around on my parents' acreage (man... I could use that space now...).
Between work, home, eat, sleep, repeat... I've been wanting something I might be able to share with my family, especially my daughter, who turns 11 in a little less than a month.

I'm sure hopin' she thinks this stuff is the coolest thing ever... and maybe pry her eyes away from the ipad for a bit.


Note: I do have some mechanical experience, but not with cars per-se. I've done a lot of mechanical ride support in my bicycling days, and was an aircraft mechanic for a couple years... and still have some of my ol' tools.

Street Legal and CycleKart are two terms that just don't fit together.
Maybe a real replica of a "Cycle Car" might be something that you could drive on the street??
Depending on Alabama Motor Vehicle Laws.
CycleKarts are fun to drive on the road (we did it today) but we are really in violation of the law, no matter how much innocent fun we think we are having.
Good Roads

A couple of weeks ago here in Philadelphia I saw about 30 kids riding dirt bikes and quads on the street. The police here don't seem to care.

I wasn't thinking of the cyclekart, as presented here, as a street legal solution... just that a search for more efficient transportation led me to what appears to be a potential for a heck of a lot of fun.
However, at 6'4" and 350 lbs... it's gonna take a little engineering...

Hello all,
just getting into this, one of my students showed the class an YouTube Video and I have about 4 students that want to build these cars even after watching all the crashes. So we are just getting started. Our plan it to build two karts, before the end of the school year. the best part is we have a machine shop, welding shop, and automotive classes here. the only thing that has been hard it to locate wheels, but that sounds like that is normal. Let the games begin. hope to see you in Arizona or Washington this summer. Thank you. Mr. Adam Arndt, Automotive Teacher at Bonneville High School, Utah
