After analyzing the picture for a bit, I think what you're getting at is that it's been exactly one year?

Do I win a prize?

Why you gotta go and eated my cookie?

Yeah, I think a suspension like that would be pretty cool, just need some cv joints on the rear and a mount for the top bearings.

Stop eating my !!!

U joints would work too and it would be easier to implement. Next kart I build I want to use suspension on too. I want to make it a two seater.

How is the suspension thing going to keep up? Don't you need shocks or something? (Sorry I'm new to suspension haha)

Looks like a good design. But in reality that is ALOT of work and $$ to get it to work.

The bike is more of a street one... so I'd go with the ATV. If it is seized, just swap it out or free it up. A bit of MMO and PB Blaster should fix it up good.
