... AND, she's dead on Spec... nice & low, I think I got the front suspension right basically. Leaf on bottom, straight across axle.

Yep

Yea, that is a pretty nice build.

I'm just going a simpler route... and drivable, and fun. Don't care if I break it. I'll fix it when that happens.

Yep

Looks great. If your wife is going to drive karts with you she must be pretty cool.

Thanks.

Yea, my wife's great for sure. Thing is, I'm getting older and so is she. Kid's off doing their own thing and this is something we can do together.

Although simplistic in design, it's low and will be comfy for my wife... as she is in a wheelchair and missing her left leg. So... a finger throttle and right foot brake... and she can go on these little driving adventures in her nifty car and take pictures of me whilst I proceed to break mine.

I may not be rich enough to buy her that super special car, but I can build her one with what I have.

Yep.

Hmmm...

Whilst wondering just what to use for the front end here... I think I have it.

... and they come in ALL sizes & shapes.

Back to the motorcycle graveyard I say!
