Hi all,
Another newby to add to the ranks, I live near Melbourne in Australia. I work in construction. And I am time poor he he he.

I am just looking at the wealth of information here first before I commit to a style or plan. There is no CK groups to speak of in my atea as far as I know, so it will be more of a private toy when I build one.
I dont have much access to lathes etc... so I will need to source as much off the shelf parts a possible. That being said ... if I need to Fab something, I always find a way.

I like long walks on the beach, I am Cancerian, poor, ugly, can't fish.

New member here from Texas,

Been interested in cyclekarts for about a year now, been gathering some parts still in the designing stages.Trying to get some room in my garage to get started which will probably take me longer to do than to build the kart ha ha.Having read many of post here I see this as a great resource and wealth of knowledge. I will probably have the usual 100,000 questions like most rookies and will overthink and complicate things for myself but this forum should keep me level headed and inspired to muddle thru. So here I go wish me luck I'm going to need it. Finally after careful ( Agonizing ) thought I decided on a 1920's Miller for my inspiration have attached a photo and as I see someone else here is really going to town on one of these love the look and style. Not very good with this tech stuff but will try and post picture and and progress reports as best I can and as I feel is wanted by anybody, so away we goooo Blake ( little tex )

Nice choice. Welcome to the mayhem,LOL.I am using a 32miller Shaw special as my inspiration. Mine is a little different in that it has a transverse spring whereas yours has two springs running parallel to the chassis. Good luck with your endeavors and can't wait to see your progress. Hopefully it will be faster than mine. Not having a fancy cad system makes the drawing a lot more drawn out(no punk intended) or not.

Yes Great Choice!
Milers are fun to build and scale well.
There are lots of detailed pictures, depending on how far you are planning on taking the replication.
Here is that car before paint.

Hello! New guy here. I am in the Greater Denver area in Colorado. I have been looking at building on of these for awhile as the aesthetics appeal to me more than a standard go kart. Still doing a lot of research, wheels is the big one. Thanks guys!

Hello to you all, I have to say that I'm excited about finding your site. I've been an avid Motörhead for almost as long as I've been alive (66years). My first project was as a '49 Plymouth convertible. Then moved to a '62 Chrysler that I stuffed a 392 Hemi and 4 speed into. It was quite the sleeper..... the only thing that gave it away was the dual exhaust. The next project was a '34 Studeabaker Dictator which was a real piece of eye candy once completed. I also love boat building, having completed 2 and currently working on my third a Cracker Box racer with a worked 327 Chevy putting out 435 hp. My wife and I will be moving this spring to Scottsdale AZ in the spring to be with my granddaughters. I sent them pictures and they both want to race these low dollar race carts. I can't wait to build one with them!

Hi! I am Gary Smith from Tweed, Ontario Canada. I just stumbled on this site and thought it was pretty cool. I am 71 years young and an avid hot rodder. I have several cars, 1950 Ford, 1939 Ford, 1934 Plymouth coupe and my son is working on a 1960 Dodge hard top. I have a 32x40 ft shop which my son and I built a few years back when we moved to the country. I have built several soap box cars with my kids in my younger days but nothing like the cars on this site. Maybe I will try a build when I finish up my cars.

Welcome Gary (fellow Ontarian),

My brother-in-law lives just south of you north of Belleville. I was there a few weeks ago thinking that his yard was big enough to ride a cyclekart, once I finish building mine.

Nice cars and shop BTW.

Vince.

Hi, I am Les from the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky. Retired military veteran with an Electronic, Network, LE, Elementary Education, and Machinist background.

In the process of gathering parts for my first cyclekart. I wish I had a better understanding of the CAD program I'm using but it should put me in the ballpark for usefulness. Some of the CAD drawings and full sized drawings on here are stunning works of art and a great source of inspiration.

Thank you all for providing such a wonderful site of inspiration and knowledge. Hopefully, I'll be able to contribute in a unique manner.

Thank you Tom. My inspiration car is a 1915 Stutz Bearcat Indy racer. I'm aiming to have the car elements in CAD before all parts are on location and the weather is cooperating (could be many months). I'm prepared to deviate on some of the angles and dimensions to accommodate my size and capabilities.
