Here's a very novel approach! I hope you can see the FB video, but I include one screenshot, too.

These show a Revilo Classic Model of a 1962 Formula 1 Cooper Climax T53.

What about one of these...

.... a 1962 Lesovsky Indianapolis Roadster.


JUST a Maserati 250f 1954-1960.

Yeap, new guy just posting too much. But got to show another idea or too....
While the dreams are shiny, the cyclekart will probably look more like this:

which is a 1915 American LaFrance Speedster, factory race car built on a firetruck chassis, 802 cu inch engine and chain drive
from http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2009/12/1915-american-lafrance-speedster.html

or possibly this 1916 ROMANO-STURTEVANT (AUBURN frame) from this website https://www.chuckstoyland.com/category/automotive/other-auto-racing/romano-race-cars/#group-8



Wish this was my daily driver sometimes...a 1937 International rat truck.

from https://www.drivingline.com/articles/trophy-rat-a-hot-rod-pickup-with-real-off-road-chops/

Enough.

====================================================
Hello, John!
You show interesting video (could be opened easily) and a photo of unorthodox three-wheeler based on old JAWA 250, two-stroke, a single-cylinder motorcycle made in Czechoslovakia...

As I had JAWA 350, I planed such vehicle, road-legal, transformed from my son's abounded motorcycle.
He had dangerous fall after a brutal start - that could look funny on TV or YouTube but is terrible in real life.
So, we decided to make three-wheeler of it. The project was stopped when I moved from Belgrade to Bern.
(that project was "guilty" that I postponed CycleKart project for better times, that usually never happened)

Ciao,
Zoran


CORRECTION> red "tricikl" (three-wheeler) was powered by engine from motorcycle WSK 175 ccm (10.3 kW (14 hp) at 6000 rpm/min... WSK was Polish brand popular motorcycles produced in the years 1954-1985 by the Communication Equipment Manufacturing PZL Swidnik. Another one was powered by the JAWA engine. To simplify things, I would use VW-beetle front axle, suspension, steering, wheels...

Zoran, you were all set to make your very own Fokker ground-plane! Just a little more red trim needed!
Here's the only three wheeler I ever built

Nothing wrong with a 250f, Rich.
I may actually finish mine one of these days!

Thanks, Brian - it's true. You should see the Mechanical StreetWalker (we'll be at the Wild West Steampunk Convention in Tucson, AZ early in March - c'mon down!).

HA, Denny, that's so true. My loving (and patient wife) always points out I have many unfinished projects, whenever I start a new one. BTW, Jules Verne is often cited as an inspiration for the Steampunk movement, our local festival for which that tricycle was designed and built. Officially, that vehicle is titled the ErrShip Airsatz! For those not yet in the know, Steampunk is an evocation of an alternate present from the Victorian past, in which steel and internal combustion were not developed. It started out as a literary genre, but now it's a big, fun, goofy theme for outrageous dress-up and play with a very mechanical twist. Kinda like Comic-con meets Renn Faire. We've run our CKs through festival, too (some pix provided here for the curious).

John,
Great fun you have at steam-punk gatherings!
Pity that I could follow that juts on the internet.
Near Bern, there is a shop with all the necessary clothes and gadgets to appear in such a festival, just to build a vehicle and "transpose" myself and all stuff there... (time machine? spiritual voyage?)
