Comment by Rick Eggers
That's a cool way to do it. One change i think I would make is somehow lengthen the hood to keep it a little closer to the actual proportions. I left my hood long like the inspiration car, and shortened the tail section to allow for a bigger cockpit area. Look for the 1935 ,Miller-Ford in the journals. Looking forward to seeing your car built

I am thinking I should stretch the nose a bit to get the front of the radiator at about at the mid point of the front axle to help solve some of the drag link and tie rod geometry problems.

I look forward to following your build journal (you might want to make it a thread in the tech section, as it is easier to follow) as I have purchased a wrecked Alfa P3 CycleKart that I will be rebuilding this winter??Brian

I dont think Ill be making a thread in the tech section. It will be very painful to watch me build this cyclekart, kind of like watching glaciers melt. I dont nearly have the skills or tools you have demonstrated in your fantastic build. I will, however, steal as many of your ideas as I can. I truly admire what you have accomplished.

Two years and counting at this end. And Brian isn't far behindme with his build, as are many others. You certainly soundlike you have the planing skills with your knowledge ofgraphics editors, vector imaging and CAD programs. Hacking away at a piece of wood or metal till it looks like aCyclekart is a task that a high school drop out can handle. I agree 100% with Brian, these journals are a pain in the ars to follow. I'd much rather follow a build in a Tech, Custom or Pub forum thread. Many of which by the way, are the length of War and Peace and still not finished.Denny GrahamSandwich, IL

Dennis, you and Brian are sprinters in comparison to my waddling. I started three years ago with a wheel design and now I finally have one wheel completely assembled and four more in progress. I have just come up with a kart design. Not modeled yet, just a 2D illustration. High school fabrication hacking skills I have yet to learn. I am making progress, but very slowly. Besides, the signal to noise level in the tech forums is too high for my taste.
