Ice Racer got pedals today!smiling bouncing smiley
And to answer the 19" question......this option never occurred to me until I went out to the shop
this morning. As I was moving CK parts around in the mess I have going on out there!
I saw the 19" wheel I had pulled out of my tire and wheel storage room for my "Drift Trike"
project (that I have yet to start) and realized that it had the knobby Tires I want and need for studying.
AND....I have two matching ones.
Then it dawned on me......why buy more rims and tires for the Ice racer that I might get to use "once"
a year????confused smiley in a non sanctioned event. And if there is snow in the lake, it might be nice to rain the
CK up an inch! So, now I will have studded 19" wheels and tires for winter play, and mount up my extra
set of really nice 17" tires on my new rims for Summer Dirt Oval racing!smiling bouncing smiley
How is that for a plan?

Now.....that's a plan!!!! Ya got a wheel storage room??? Now that's organization if I ever heard of it!

People ask me all the time about the mess I'm gonna leave behind. "Hey Dennis, who's gonna get rid
of all this junk you've collected when you go??? So I tell them, "Don't cha worry about it......I ain't goin
for another 24 years.
But it looks like you're gonna have to stick around for another 50 years to clean out all those rooms
you've been hording "stuff" in, Woody.

Speaking of off Stevenson-wheels and tires, I've got this buddy, who has these 4 Harley wheels and tires that
he's been trying to get rid of. And I think about taking them every time I look at Dave Baird's Goliath.
I even went out and bought me a V-twin Predator soon after seeing pictures of his kart/car.
But.....I don't know where I'd store them.....cuz I don't have a "Wheel Storage" room here at Shangri La.

Well, the Mutt and me are back from our walk, and she's headed back to bed, and I'm headed to the barn.
Ya'll have a good day.

I went to the shop with good intentions, both yesterday and today!eye rolling smiley
But got side tracked by the MGA again.
So tonight when the clock struck midnight in the shop for the second day in a row,
I thought I had better do at least on thing on the CycleKart??confused smiley
So, I welded the skid plate on that I made on Sunday.......it will give the Ice Racer a
toboggan effect if I encounter a snow drift or two.smiling bouncing smiley
Now I am in for my nightly cup of tea before bed.
Good Roads

After three weeks of distractions, I finally got back to the CycleKart Shop and got reacquainted with my
Ice Racer Project.
Thought I had better get back at it before winter is gone?eye rolling smiley
After staring at I for about an hour, I realized I had started to over think this project.confused smiley
So I decided not try and make it the "Fastest CK", or the Lightest CK, or the most Period Correct CK,
or even the Prettiest CK........I want it to just be a "FUN" CK.smiling bouncing smiley
so I hauled the welder up to the CK shop and just started welding.
Planning a big day tomorrow!
I will take some pictures.

Brian
PS
Finally made my motor placement, TAV clocking, and wheelbase decision today also!
Stay tuned, as I am on my way now!

Sometimes it pays to put the blinders on and focus on just one task at a time.
At lest I'm finding that to be true now that I'm no longer capable of multitasking
like in my youth.

I started cutting everything off the new frame (constructed from Ducati Shipping Crate) that
"did not" look like an Ice Racer!

More similarities between us once again Brian. That's the way I've
been building things my whole adult life.....just cut away everything
that doesn't look like a Cyclekart and after some time......you've end
up with a Cyclekart. At least, that's the way it worked for the
two airplanes I built.
A warm beverage, a belly full of porridge, now out to the barn.
G'day

Looks like we will get some ice, now if it warms up for us to use it.



S'all for now!

I think so.........I still need one more wheel and a pair of knobby 17" rear tires to stud!
Is your cart "Ice Ready" Vic?
And can we come to your house on the Garage Tour tentatively scheduled for
Sunday Feb. 17th??????

It's a little too cold on the patio for any kind of visit right now.

I had two 14 hour days at work and did see lot o' ice, so there still is that possibility.



S'all for now!
