I am going to build a cyclekart if there is somewhere to drive it and some social activities...including an event.

Here is my wish list:

- Club within 75 miles from 08801 Annandale NJ
- Somewhere to ride the cyclekart
- People that will share their ideas
- People that will join a club and regularly support the meetings and activities
- I have a decent shop (not necessarily the skills) and I would gladly share it with others...hope others would do the same
- Motivate me into building, driving and sharing the fun of what appears to be an incredible new sport

I think building it is certainly a challenge...but regularly supporting a group takes much more work

Here are my questions to other potential cyclekart enthusiasts:

- Are you willing to be an active member of a group if it shares your interests and values?
- Where do you live?
- Are you willing to meet monthly?

I'm interested in getting together for some "gentleman racing" but it looks like your about 3hrs away from me in upstate NY. My carts almost complete and then it's trying to convince my boss to let me race on his 200 acres of hilly fields and woods.

I would be willing to drive 3 hours. A couple of times a year I drive to FL and pull a boat. That's 22+ hours of driving...3 hours is like driving to the Jersey Shore with summer traffic...

That would be a great start.

Hopefully others will start getting excited.

I'm in! Just above Troy, NY (central to NJ, downstate, western NY and western New England - or as the sign in our airport says, " within 4 hours drive of over 50% of North American purchasing power!" I hereby offer our place, Pennywise Plantation, as official NE Cyclekarts Club HQ. We should plan our first gathering/race for once this damnable winter is done (and I'll be sure to have Hemmings coverage), but smaller, less organized visits are welcome in the meantime. jc

Hey John,
Thats a great offer and a perfect idea! I know that I'm only 3hrs away fro Troy, NY… and I'm in RI.

I'm all for the NE Cyclekarts HQ being there. Completely agree on all of us getting together for a meet & greet once the New England weather warms up!

Thanks,
Dave

Hi John, I'm putting the finishing touches to my kart, type 37 Bugatti. Lots of ideas for the next one but I really should work on some other car related projects 1st. Our eldest used to be in daycare in melrose and used to go through to tube the Battenkill in Cambridge. You are about 35 miles away so count me in for some spring racing. What's ur inspiration car going to be?

Say, have we met already? In some other car-relatedvenue, perhaps?

Great - I better start my build ASAP. I am going to base it off of a Authentic Models PC012 Bantam Midget Red. This is an 18" replica and highly detailed.



See you in the summer, CK or no CK.

Many thanks!

Thanks for posting that link. I had never heard of a Salmson Grand Prix, but it looks to be the perfect candidate to copy as a CK.
The body looks to be fabric........which leads me to last weeks discovery of fabric currently being used to cover the fuselage of small planes.
I was trying to recruit another CK member at an Aircraft repair shop at the airport, when the owner showed and explained this very lightweight but strong fabric he likes to use. I could see the wheel turning as we discussed cyclekarts and the importance of weigh saving during construction.
Good Roads
