Home Made GoKart with Steering Wheel
Here is my first attempt at a vertical steering wheel go kart.
Axel purchased from Bunnings. Body sits on a flat piece of chip board. Fairly heavy duty.
This was the challenging part. I used a long bolt for the upright. Notice the wheels are lowered to avoid hitting the bottom of the cart.
The steering wheel uses a lock nut. On version 3, I will remove the washer and chisel grooves for the nut to sit in the wood. At present it turns with heavy use. What I really need is a washer that has spikes to hold the wood.
Two bolts prevent slippage. Make sure these are tight.
Extra bolts required because the wheels were too high.
The finished product. I just screwed a chair on the top and voila. A DIY home made go kart with steering wheel!
