So today I got stuck in, manufactured whole new steering set up. It's now got 2 tie rods brand new steering arm bracket and spindle holders. I've remanufactured the seat support to sit 150mm lower than standard. Next will be my 2 piece seat and mounting my fuel tank. My idea is to keep this thing as cheap as possible by building everything I can from scrap steel and parts I have laying around so here goes.

thanks guys Smile I've been busy again today, fixing up little things and plug welding all of my unwanted holes, sanding the frame back and I've run 1" box steel up the frame to make it a little more rigid. I'm sweating my balls off as its 35 degrees Celsius here Sad I hate welding in the heat lol

I've never seen the snow before, it's either to hot to wear clothing or just cool enough to put a long sleeve shirt on. I'm jealous lol

A few winters ago there were some Aussies visiting a friend of mine on holiday. They wound up at my house and were marveling at the igloo my kids and I made Very Happy

They were pretty easy to understand for the most part, but there was definitely some word confusion...
Example: they were weirded out by my ordering a pitcher of beer. The appropriate word is apparently a jug.

Not that I've seen. Only beer I've seen around that claims to be Australian is Fosters.

thanks thunder and richie too... I've been down to the garage and i finally have my idea for my final design. I'll be posting up pics later tonight but I've done a 215mm stretch and re-enforced my chassis 10 fold. it's still gonna be a racer but rather than using my 5.5hp I'm going to go big or go home... 18hp oppy and I'm gonna work the living s**t out of it. and advice or ideas would be welcome too Smile
