Wheelbarrow tub Go Kart
6 Attachment(s)
I'm trying to get my girl into rodding a bit or at least to start learning about cars. She has a little off the shelf go kart that she has fun with so we decided to build a kart from scratch this year. I had seen some karts done with wheelbarrow tubs as bodies that came out looking like mini t-buckets that I thought were cool so that's what we're going with. Here's the mock up and start of the frame.

Very Cool.
When I was but a wee fatherless lad, my brother and I got the brainstorm to attach a 3-1/2 hp Briggs and Stratton lawn mower engine to the back of a Radio Flyer red wagon. Direct belt drive so we could push start it. Stopped it by grounding out the plug.:eek::D
Bent up a conduit frame and everything to mount the engine.
It was a straight line screamer, but not great on the turning thing.:eek: :p [ddd

Great idea. glad to see she is into it. Teach her to weld, she'll be good at it and have a great sense of accomplishment. [;)[cl[P

We made a little progress on the kart last night. We cut the end out of the tub and pinched it about 3 inches in the front to get the lines looking a little better and to get it fitting the frame better. Next itís on to mounting the tub.
