Hi all,
Another newby to add to the ranks, I live near Melbourne in Australia. I work in construction. And I am time poor he he he.

I am just looking at the wealth of information here first before I commit to a style or plan. There is no CK groups to speak of in my atea as far as I know, so it will be more of a private toy when I build one.
I dont have much access to lathes etc... so I will need to source as much off the shelf parts a possible. That being said ... if I need to Fab something, I always find a way.

I like long walks on the beach, I am Cancerian, poor, ugly, can't fish.

New member here from Texas,

Been interested in cyclekarts for about a year now, been gathering some parts still in the designing stages.Trying to get some room in my garage to get started which will probably take me longer to do than to build the kart ha ha.Having read many of post here I see this as a great resource and wealth of knowledge. I will probably have the usual 100,000 questions like most rookies and will overthink and complicate things for myself but this forum should keep me level headed and inspired to muddle thru. So here I go wish me luck I'm going to need it. Finally after careful ( Agonizing ) thought I decided on a 1920's Miller for my inspiration have attached a photo and as I see someone else here is really going to town on one of these love the look and style. Not very good with this tech stuff but will try and post picture and and progress reports as best I can and as I feel is wanted by anybody, so away we goooo Blake ( little tex )

Nice choice. Welcome to the mayhem,LOL.I am using a 32miller Shaw special as my inspiration. Mine is a little different in that it has a transverse spring whereas yours has two springs running parallel to the chassis. Good luck with your endeavors and can't wait to see your progress. Hopefully it will be faster than mine. Not having a fancy cad system makes the drawing a lot more drawn out(no punk intended) or not.

Yes Great Choice!
Milers are fun to build and scale well.
There are lots of detailed pictures, depending on how far you are planning on taking the replication.
Here is that car before paint.

Hello! New guy here. I am in the Greater Denver area in Colorado. I have been looking at building on of these for awhile as the aesthetics appeal to me more than a standard go kart. Still doing a lot of research, wheels is the big one. Thanks guys!
