... something more about French Connection:







Did I miss something or there are not any suspensions at the front?

Excellent workshop and tools, but craftsmen art too!

Ciao,
Zoran

The 2nd Northeast Meet has been delayed to June 3, due to the capriciousness of Mother Nature, who promises a washout tomorrow, but today all is beautiful and the course is ready (except for signs and lines), so I ran a couple of laps as a teaser. You can see GoPro video at:

First views of 2nd Northeast Spring Meet. While only 3 of expected 6 CKs were on hand, we shared, and had fun (and broke stuff, and fixed it, and enthused several aspiring builders!). Perfect weather, good food, fine friends old and new, plus LOTS of fun! Youtube link below (in case it doesn't auto-load). Just wait til our NEXT meet (bigger and better every time)!

Hello, John!
I am sure that all of you presented on magnificent race-track had nice time spent: owners and drivers of Cyclekarts, then the people from the public, family and friends messing around...
.
However, we no-Cyclekartistes have a nice time watching you buzzing around, and after finishing this message - I will jump again in a cockpit and take another round!
It seems that short grass is a good compromise for "race": less brutal than full off-road as "orchard"is, and more interesting than running mover asphalt or concrete around supermarket's parking and factories' plants.
That bridge is a little frightening for crossing fast, but from my armchair not so much...

The video is excellent (for my taste): not too long a with few photos of the atmosphere (I felt a good smell of barbecue), then nice video-shots, and with the best "music" - engines running, wheels thundering and the sound of wind...
Just couldn't feel the vibrations and twisting of Cyclekarts, but I could imagine that...

Congratulations on the great fun for all of you and for the nice presentation for all of us!

Regards,
Zoran

Thanks, Zoran! Yes, I do need a more rigid mount for my GoPro camera! It's not quite as shaky doing it as seeing it. That said, I agree completely that the combination of short grass and some dirt is the best fun possible. We mostly use no slip on the axle, too, so in the turns, we really toss up some dust! The little bridge is not to tricky, because the tight turn approaching it FORCEs a slower entry. Nobody has ever missed yet (and if they did, the harm is small, as it's just there to ease passage through a shady, damp area - no drop off). I know we got at least two more builders going with this year's event; and I expect we will be growing this with each repeat! Keep an eye out for the next event announcement - it might make a nice vacation stop for you!

... Yes, it could be a nice vacation stop for me, visiting your beautiful propriety including nice "racing" track and to enjoy watching in live you all running around, but...
Always that ugly BUT: as Serbian pensioner living in Swiss (it would be better if it is opposite) - no chances this turn to visit America and have nice voyage stop!
So, I will follow on the screen your happenings and adventures!

Spirit of your and a few other groups from around our World, including France and Argentina - are in the most Cyclekartistes way, in my humble opinion!

Zoran!

Well THAT was fun. For just a bit, to the devil with the grownup world!
The Northeast Cyclekart gang (not organized enough to call us a 'club') held the 2nd Probably Annual Fall Meet yesterday. The weather was decent. Nick Walters hosted at a secluded hilltop park-like setting with pavilion, lake and lots of challenging routes through field and wood. Five running karts appeared, plus one in-progress project. About 20 people present all told, and all who wanted to got to drive at least one. The narrowness and roughness of most paths prevented any real overtaking at speed, so in lieu of wheel-to-wheel racing, we ran time trials and chase tours on a modified route that removed the muddiest and steepest parts. Nick made the fastest time at 2:09, followed by yrs trly at 2:30, and others at 3 minutes and up. There are some pix on my facebook page:

GoPro video posted too, at:

And, yes, my little Salmson broke again, but not til the end of the day (it's not overbuilt by one little bit!).

That looks like Jolly Good fun!

Is there a build thread on the Lotus? That’s a wonderful looking CycleKart.

Wow John, that's quite a course. A loverly piece of property.
That Lotus turned out just great, in fact all the karts you guys
are building back east really follow in the spirit of their inspiration cars.
I noticed that the Salmson seemed a lot tamer in this video
than it did at the first meeting. Did you do something to dampen
the front end over the summer???
