So has anyone heard from Rhys??? I know him and I had some difference of
opinion at times, but opposing points of view are what break up the monotony.
It appeared he was selling off all his CK stuff a few months back. Perhaps
the lack of participation in the event he was trying to put together in the UK
put the cork in the bottle and he's focusing on the real race cars again???

He's still selling his CK, stuff, another project has come up that he wants to get involved in. Having said that he's said he's still prepared to be involved in setting up events, hopefully he'll come back to it once things get going properly over here.

Well thanks for the update Chris. I certainly understand having other projects,
I've got so many of them goin on I'm afraid another year is gonna pass
before I get back to the kart. But......I'm not sellin' any of the CK stuff cuz
according to my big old wife, I'm a hoarder. I keep everything because
everything I keep has a purpose, if not today, then tomorrow someday.
Bought the fixin's to make a metal melter a while back but never had the
time to put it all together. Hauled it all out last week and found a receipt
dated Aug, 12, 2000. I knew I'd get to it one day......if I lived long enough.

Saw him at Tieton...I *think* he is on his way back home or is there. Busy guy tied into all sorts of other organizations (historical car & others). Given he was selling parts in NZ he may be just getting rid of some of that....but no real idea.

In the wee bit we chatted we never chatted much about karts... funny how these events have all the people there but you never seem to find much time....just a lot of running around.

Last post , I am back in UK, some parts sold yesterday, others to go. Reasons are pretty obvious if you were one who read stuff on the site. Real Cycle Car with 191x components, real historic race car. The Voisin weighed in at 202 lbs at Tieton. Only issues were me, a throttle cable end pulled off and chain jumped. Again my fault for not tightening everything after the engine settled into the multi layer plywood block. Rear track? Questionable but the inspiration had it. Still have motor/TAV to sell and small bits.

Hello all UK builders !

I am busy gathering all the bits n pieces required to put a kart together. Thanks to Rhys I now have an engine and wheels to fit on my as yet un-welded chassis. Front axle, springs and spindles on the way from cyclekarts.co.uk. So I think within the next few months I will have something akin to a cycle kart and a desire to race. Looking forward to lots of fun in the coming months and the growth of the sport in the UK/Europe.

Quick update on the ole CK.

All mechanical parts in place, engine started for the first time and running gear tested. So far so good, road trial planned for tomorrow, so no doubt a lot more 'adjustments' will be required after that.

Ok, hi all karteers !

We have moved on a bit since the last post.
Chassis is complete, I ran it up the street and it ran straight and true.
Now comes what I see as the hardest part for me, that is skinning the body. I decided to use a grill from an 90's Jaguar (upside down) as I feel it deserves at least one feature that is perfect.
