    kool build Chris, wish I had done this when my kids were (much) younger. They had go karts, quads and dirt bikes and my son also has a petrol chopper, but at 20 he woulld now look silly on any of them but we still have them all stored in the shed.

    with out hearing the sound of violins jim ............... when I was a kid I had bugger all and all I ever wanted was my old man to make me a go kart !!!!!! nothing flash just planks of wood , pram wheels and a bit of string to steer powered by being pushed down a hill .................. I never got one as much as I begged but in the end I did build my own so im just giving my kids what I missed out on .....im not just building it for him ya know !!!!!!!!
    didn't get much done today other than get seat fitted and start measuring for the funny car style cage we plan for
