Oh how I remember the drawing time!But once I was finished and satisfied that I had all the dimensioned right, I followed Dennis Thomas' lead in having a full size (actual finished) copy of my drawing printed and put up on the wall of my shop. Which I have used almost every day of my build to check measurements and eyeball lines.Cost only $11.??But worth its weight in gold! Brian

I had watched a video of Dennis ( have watched them all) of him doing just that. Best I could was layout a full size drawing of the frame rails on a 4x8 and work on top of it. Did the same thing on a smaller scale for the front axle on top of the work bench.. Did all this in 1/4 of a two car garage, could not walk around the right rear of the car, not much going on over there anyway. Thanks Brian for even reading my post, it's nice to post this stuff and hear back from people who went down the same path and ones who are standing at the trail head. Have a great week.

There's that famous CK smile we hear about so often. Looking good Bill, proportions look perfect, and I like the way you sit down in the cockpit rather than on it, makes it look like the real deal, nice job Tex.But, but, LED's???? Naw, don't belong ona 27 Delage, however, does help you avoid running over the neighbors cat.Like to hear more specifics about the performance with that gear box and all. Denny G

The free hf head lights are held on with painters tape just to appease the wife. Doing night time runs to avoid neighbors and beat the heat, the smile, I think it's from making it back in one piece. And thanks for commenting on the look, I tried real hard to make it look authentic. Not alot of leg room so the cowl has to be tall. Alot was due just to the fact that I wanted a vertical steering wheel. Thanks again, thanks for your service.

Hello, Billy! Quite interesting general design with the engine at the front and Peerless transaxle at rear - with the super high level of realisation! Couldn't wait to see the complete vehicle and to read about the first ride impressions! Best regards, Zoran ... P.S.: Text is very useful for anybody that wants to build such extraordinary CycleKart! Rating of 10 is for all paragraphs and all photos!

Thanks a lot, Zoran. Tried to make it look period correct, I have already taken it on its first test run that's why I had to redo the brakes and did a gear change. Did a second test run this evening,not near as sketchy as the first run but I think I'm going back to the old gear set up. Kart turns like a roller coaster( real tight) just don't touch the wheel while going straight. Going to mess with toe in toe out, it will change lanes instantly. When I find some more time I'll post another step till I get to the end. Thanks again for appreciating the work
