and one of my favorites…
I was looking to pic up a radio flyer for my son so i could pull him around the house and occasional car meets and whatever..
but at a local trash dump near me i saw something i could use.. a double decker shopping cart(you know the mini ones from whole foods) then i broke out the saws all and my welder and i started to fabricate my own version..
The sides are made of sawzalled up black plastic thats a 1/8th inch thick!.. and its natural black to windex or garden hose and its all clean.
i lowered the front end of the cart by fabbing up a new front axle and lowered it about 3 inches.. the rear tires are from an all terrain lawnmower wheels that they sell at homedepot.
i made a quick release bar in the rear to steer the cart.. it rides like a dream!
heres the result with my son sitting in the cart..
There is still some little tidbits here and there to do but for now shes done..
i still have to break the motor in.. but im having so much fun doing it!
hope to see you guys on a roadcourse or autox near you!
