Well Peter......I gotta tell ya....that has to be the record....30 days start to finish.
You must not even stop to sleep or eat supper. You must also have a very
understanding spouse.
At that rate you could turn out 12 a year. Plenty of guys asking for completed karts.
Very nice work also. Like that hand brake and upholstery. Is the brake Actually functional?
And who sewed our upholstery????
Ah. just went back and reread the post about the E-brake. Didn't look like it would work with
that screw thru the detent. Still.....nice touch.

Great job Peter.

For all you yappers out there, see what can happen if you put your mind to it.
The bigger the shed or the most tools just lead to more distractions.

It would be an awfully dull place around here here if it weren't for the "Yappin" as you call it Vic.
And personally, if all I did is work on a cyclekart, I sure wouldn't get anything else done in the
shop, the house, the yard the cars and tractors, walking the mutt, etc., etc. For some of us
there a CK is what we think about when we get a minute or two to spare.
For instance, "yappin" is what I do when I need to come in for a warm up, or right before and
after a little shut eye.

In reply to # 29639 by carChips Great job Peter.

I hope Peter has inspired you Vic, as it would be nice to have all of our CKs on the road when spring finally arrives.
How is your new body coming along?

Tremendous job Peter!
Amazing focus and result. Anyone building knows it's not as easy as you just made it look.
A series of managable, clearly chosen tasks knocked down in order, by a guy who obviously knows his tools, his materials and what he wanted out of them. Now register the thing so I can give it a 10!

6" may also work as original Bugatti Type 35's had fairly large headlights that were part of their look.
Probably 8" or 9" at least????? I am not certain, but someone here will know.

Some of the guys are using these and they look pretty much to scale, almost 5" dia, inexpensive
and there's no end of choices on ebay:

They're the same ones as I mentioned on the previous page Denny: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2X-LED-Motorcycle-Driving-Fog-Lamp-Spot-Light-Headlight-Universal-/172453570190?clk_rvr_id=1438230777873&rmvSB=true,. So presumably don't suit, I bought them for my Morgan, fitted 5W LED bulbs though, as the original 10W tungstens were a bit dim.

Good call Chris, I looked but couldn't find also at my age.....couldn't remember who
posted that they had used them. I think a couple of other guys did also. Someone
had removed the hood and you couldn't tell that it ever had one, I think it might have
been Angle Santiago on one of his beautiful cars.
I'm sure as ambitious as Peter is he'll figure it out...and pretty quick I might add.

One more view, but here are four allowed. All but the lipstick on the pig. # 14 is still to come. I am about to start another kart, and this one will be ALL WOOD. Aluminium was fun but I am do for a change. Parts are on order and will fall together next month. I intend to do the chassis and up with baltic multilam birch and luam mahogany with a coat of 6 oz fibre glass for weather protection. In lieu of the present polished body I (wife) has chosen red or burgundy finish.
