What pedals are the majority of you folks using? Are they regular Kart ones or something else.

And of course Steve, you are getting the advice from the folks in the US where you would have to pay freight from. Usual advice to you applies, Gemini, or any used or new kart stuff here in the UK! Lots on Ebay UK

These are on ebay.uk but ship from the states. Seems reasonably priced?

Just a thought though, if we want the UK industry, that makes parts here and supports our hobby, should we not support them as long as the price is close, rather than supporting Asian industry?
The pedals you showed Justin cost almost the same by the time they are posted, according to the listing, as does Gemini who are specifically jigging up for cycle karts, and they have a field next to their workshop which we may be able to play on!

Absolutely! I haven't heard of Gemini before, that's awesome there's local, to you guys, place to acquire stuff like that. I was just posting up alternatives, as always!

Brian, those are some of the nicest, most substantial and actually, the most easy
foot pedals that one could make in his own shop.

I'm curious what engine do you plan on that's not Asian?
...I hear what you're saying but really, Asian is many things in hobbies and probably what you used to post online with.

Likewise Bruce, I hear what you are saying, the difference is that there is a choice available. Yes I do use Asian motors (plural) but I will support the folks who make things where I live. They need to have our support to survive.

Thanks Denny
They were just cut out of a piece of scrap aluminum channel I had.
My secret is, the I used an automotive door pin (nerled) c/w brass bushings that went in the
ens of the pivot tube, so that the aluminium do not rotate on the pin and cause wear.
Good Roads

Here's what I did, all from bits lying around. the larger alloy angle means I can move them readily, as I have yet to get it right first time.
