Wooden go kart plans with steering wheel,desks plans to build,how to make a wood bench seat - For Outdoors
I recently recieved a comment from Jason with a link to his website where he has put details of making a very cool wooden go-kart.
If you can get some old bicycle parts and an old engine from a lawnmower or similiar you can make the kart very cheaply. Head to the Complete Kartbuilding Website to get these free wooden cart plans where you can download and print all the drawings.
The book was highly relevant to a person confident with DIY skills in building an engine powered go-kart. The book which has 90 pages has just enough information and diagrams to build the standard kart. I’ve just finished all the 3D Modelling of the kart, and will be doing the Plans and 2D Drawings very soon.
It has lots of useful information on engines, videos of engines in use on karts and much more. When I started the first Kartbuilding website in 2001 (archive link), there was very little information available on karts and kart plans on the Internet. While the articleitself lacks a lot of inside information into the build, it provides great inspiration to many people looking to build karts from old pieces of scrap and second-hand parts. Ask friends and neighbours for any old bicycle parts or wheels or machines from which to make the kart.
I get a lot of emails asking how to implement a pedal drive for the wooden-go-karts listed here. People have emailed in asking these questions, so I dug out an old set of cart plans and revamped them.
Full parts lists (shopping lists) and Tools required for this kart have all been documented.
It was difficult following the text and images in some places, trying to fully understand what is been described and I found myself reading paragraphs three and four times. I like to be able to print the 15-20 pages showing the complete set of plans showing all the dimensions together. That could well be a good thing for a person making their first kart (or buggy as its called).
