Streetliner Cycle Kart (sorta)

Project Streetliner

I happened on Project Streetliner, a scooter based commuter vehicle, that I thought was worth mentioning here since it is “sorta” like a Cycle Kart. It is home-built, so in that capacity, it embraces the “figure it out and have fun doing it” mentality of Cycle Karting. The front end would also look nice on a Cycle Kart, especially if someone would tackle a wishbone suspension like the Streetliner, while maintaining a vintage look.  I am using an independent swing arm suspension, but utilizing a single transverse half elliptical leaf spring, so it will be in front of the body.

First Ride

UPDATED I switched the video to a slightly longer video Don posted.

I have posted pictures of Don’s build progress earlier and now he has video of his first ride!

Congrats Don, it looks good.  It also makes me want to finish mine.

Cycle Kart Pictures

Since I have not been posting any real progress, I thought it might be refreshing to see a Cycle Kart project that is actually getting somewhere.  Don, a commenter on CycleKarting.com sent me several images of his progress, with more pictures on the way.  He has really done a great job with execution and I will look forward to seeing how his Cycle Kart evolves.
