    Volksrod/buggy pedal powered

    Bit more progress, tuned the drive train, bonnet lowered, wheel covers with VW hub caps. Head lights that turn with the steering, smaller nurf bar and fitted the fold down windscreens from the buggy, see above.

    Volksrod/buggy pedal powered

    Whooohooo we have some progress, control as in steering in, also revisited the front end. Was going to have a rigid front end but thought what the heck, had the bits so went with suspension, see how she goes, if work out couple of bolts and she goes back to a solid set up! So you can steer her...

    So after a couple of big days finally got the rear end sorted, originally had the drive wheels out beyond the body. Revised this, they now sit nicely in the space where the VW engine would have sat. So in a sense have the motor where it should be! Next sort out the chin drive, plan is to have...

    As with us all no work so into various projects at home, been a VW fan for years, had both 1960 and 64 split window Kombis also an ex Australian Army nine seater Kombi, wish I'd kept one of them worth a Kings ransom these days!

    Unofficial March Shootout II

    Done, calling her the One-Day-Wonder as she was done in a day, bars, banana seat with sissy bar, front fender greased the bearings and she's done. Nice to ride even without the chain oiled, may add front brakes, see how I feel before the deadline. Got the motor scooter done as well ready for...

    Anybody else have a motorcycle?

    Been away from bikes a while now, until I recently scored this year 2000 Suzuki GZ250. When I got her not running, broken clutch cable, rusted out exhaust, no tail lights or fenders and not a of the purple tank! How she sits now, got her running nice, lights up, fenders and paint, just...
