    Heres a few pics of what i have done so far.

    i'm going to be using a Porsche 928 16" x 8" rear wheel and a Suzuki SB200 front wheel and everything inbetween is going to be scratch built.

    :D Thanks Rob!
    Really loving seeing yours come together, the single sided rear with a fat tire is an interesting engineering task! Love seeing someone else doing it.

    Luke.
