I hope she is okay! Anyway I think you could bend some 3/16" steel and that would be a big improvement for if the chain came off....though it might hurt your ears when the chain hits the plate :P

I think your best bet is to put two go kart tires ~18" each in that configuration. Then you can run pillow blocks and 1" axles through some large square stock steel in a reinforced shape(ie some...

True, U-joints are also a terrible choice for that. I mean its not like the auto industry proved that in the early 30s.

I've done engine rebuilds. Its something he can practice with on the side but I don't think its really worth it all in. I'll pay an extra 60$ to know I'm going to ride it when I want to.
