"10 Workdays": The Build Schedule

Posted on: Thursday March 8, 2018

With all the family and other committments this winter, I decided to make a 10 day build schedule with the goal to drive my cycle kart on the 11th day!!!! "And on the 11th Day, he conquered the track...." I know some of you will think this was a stupid, unattainable build plan, BUT without a crazy goal, I never seem to get "fun" things accomplished with all that is going on now that I'm retired....I keep saying that I should go back to teaching high school so that I'd have time to do all th...

One o...

Chassis Construction

Posted on: Friday August 11, 2017

I'm tied up until Aug 22 as chairman of the largest outdoor automotive fleamarket in a 500 km radius hosted by the NB Antique Auto Club. Once that has been completed, I expect to start some serious garage time putting together my CK chassis. All my mechanical, electrical, wheels, suspension parts, engine, etc are sitting there waiting to have a chassis to call home..... I've been checking out other "bodystyles" that CKC members have, there are some unbelievable karts out there. Ju...
