Default 2016 - Chrome Rhino's "Wheelbarrow Racer"

This one is simple. Old wheelbarrow and 1996 Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R. I have no other parts lol My plan is to use the wheelbarrow as a seat and use as many parts from the motorcycle as possible. I included a pic of sone sheetmetal I have that might come into play in the build, just in case.

If you really want to wind him up, just remind him that the North knows how to use measuring tools...... (I think it's because we invented a lot of them along the way.....)

Lol yeah, that's funny. Maybe I will include measurements like "about two coon tails long", "as wide as a 16 hand horse's hoof wide" and "from here to over'dar" so he can understand better?

Well Texas is constitutionally still seperate in a way... so you still got that. Oh, and southerners are the only ones who can get away with guys wearing high heels without people making fun of them... you just call them "coyboy boots". So you got a couple things out of the whole deal. Congrats

Guys Guys... I dont even think Texas was involved in the Civil War!
Oh yeah they joined the Union in 1845 and seceded in 1861. Then rejoined in 1870.
Sounds wishy washy to me!

Carry on.

Ok... I have a little extra free time today so I think I'm going to design a rough outline of the frame design and all around layout. I need to decide what building materials I'm going to use. I was thinking rectangular tubing since its easier to build with. What do you guys suggest?

I think 1 x 1 square tube should do the trick nicely.

For that Hot Rod Look I would use Rectangular Like 1"x 2" I used .120 wall on mine Way overkill.but it is Flat. no triangulation or upper rails. tying things together.

I posted the same advice, but apparently, my post didn't go through!

Ok.. 1"x2" was what I was thinking but didn't want to go too light. lol I used 1" x 1" for the Rat Wagon. Lol I know that was entirely over doing it but its what I had. I would feel more comfortable with the 1"x2" so I will get to looking for some and pricingt it out.

Thanks guys.
