Here it is, the combined build off thread for folks to post pictures of their entries and the progress. The rules are simple, it must be a Pedal Car, or a Wagon, or a Wheel Barrow. It must roll. It cannot be completed before you post it, we want to see the build. It's a 3 month build off starting Sept 1st CST and running til Dec 1st CST. Multiple entries are not allowed, but one swap out is. We're all in this thread together, I'll sort it all out at the end and create a voting thread. Have fun.

Carl.

I'll jump in with "Wagonator"...this old Sears wagon was given to my oldest son by my dad years ago. It even has some stickers that the kids added. At some point I replaced the the original rusted out wheels and undercarriage with some from a Radio Flyer which will get replaced again. The original wagon has spent its entire life outside in the elements. It served as our boys toy, hauled stuff, served as a workbench in building a deck and fencing and as a planter and yard art. It also served as a model for paint tests. It would be from around 1967.
Anyway here is a parts stash I've collected. After doing a couple of wagon restorations and many bikes I was planning on ratting this one out and along came this buildoff. Here is the starting point.

A little Wagonator dilemma...I picked up this old Radio Flyer yesterday. Now I'm not sure which wagon I want to start with. I'm liking the patina on the RF, but the Sears pan is more structurally sound.
It may depend on which one lets me remove wheels from axles.

I'm test fitting the axle adapters to 5/8" wheels. I'll probably shorten the axle length a bit. I'll do some frame mockup next to figure out geometry. No scale drawings just a few drawings so far...using the KISS principle.
