Thanks guys!
This was super helpful. I guess I'll be purchasing a live axle kit from BMI for this first build (@J.S.@SMS I've welded some MIG before but I'm undertaking this project partly to learn some stick welding)
(@anickode I don't have much more than just very basic tools so it sounds like I would have a very big headache trying to fabricate that).

I'm looking at a 1" steel live axle (https://www.bmikarts.com/1-Steel-Live-Axle_p_517.html) my next question is, do you guys think this would withstand the power output from a small motorcycle engine (under 250cc) or would a 1-1/4" aluminum do better do you think?


cheers!
