Default DNF - 2018 - The Flyer!

My step daughter, "Alex"andra and I needed a project. I had always wanted a go kart, growing up, but never got around to having one. She was kind enough to offer her assistance in building one, so long as she got to ride it when it was done. Fair enough!

First things first, our official entry picture, complete with a poorly pictured sign.

Our first pile of parts!

An old radio flyer.

We went to HFT for the engine (Yes, it's a hemi) and front wheels.

We got some square tube and angle from home depot.

Seat padding and vinyl came from Joann's.

The rest came from Amazon or gopowersports.

We did some measuring and laying on the ground for a while before getting started.

Then we got stated on our frame!

Got a little too excited welding.

But a quick grinding to the corner of the engine mount let it sit place tightly.

A few stitch welds should hold our massive hp goals down.

We stopped to check seating arrangements.

When I was welding the axle mounts on, Alex told me my butt was out.

We stopped day one of work with pretty much a wheel barrow. It's starting to look like something!
