Hi, I am starting to build a CDO replica. I would like to know where did you buy the wheels. Are those from Northern Tools? Those are rated for 300 lbs. and I am a little concerned about that. Thanks.

I'm also starting a CDO Replica,
I chose to use wheels off of a Dirt Bike I know they will hold up
to the weight I'm not sure if it will slow the speed down yet.
But if anyone can give advice on it that would be great

Not too many people on this forum are knowledgeable on these replica builds, but we will help as much as we can. Maybe do a goole search to see if there aren't forums out there exclusively devoted to these builds.

I hate to admit this but we've got one of these in one of the family's storage buildings. I suppose I'll have to snap a few pictures next time I'm there fetching tires.
