    What is it?

    I picked this up the other day and was wondering what it is? Has a 2.5hp Briggs that doesn't belong on it. Any thoughts?

    Cushman Minibikes?

    The first Cushman motorscooter was manufactured in Lincoln, NE in 1939 and continued through 1965. The last of the Cushmans were sold as a 1966, but were built in 1965. The introduction of the Honda motorcycles from Japan put Cushman out of the scooter business.

    axle locked

    lI got a Peerless 100 diff from Northern Tool for around $120 + freight. Works like a champ. You have to use a Peerless sprocket, though. Northern Tool's sprocket that they have in their catalog will not fit. You can get the proper sprocket direct from Peerless.

    The Mighty Midget

    Most cyclekart guys are using 17 inch Honda motorcycle wheels, but they are getting harder to find....and more expensive. I was a bit concerned about the durability of a wire wheel when you pitch it sideways in a corner, so I chose regular disc wheels instead...also for the look I was after.

    The Mighty Midget

    I thought I would post a few pictures of a project that I completed recently. It's a representation of a 1930's Midget race car. I built it here in my shop. It has a 63 inch wheelbase, a 212 Predator/Comet torque converter, go kart axles, spindles, etc. The body is hand made from a variety...

    Front Fork Mod

    With the addition of a smaller width wheel on the front of my Baja, the front end just didn't look right. The fork tubes were way to wide. So I sectioned 3 inches out of it to narrow it up, made a new aluminum top plate, stuck it back together. I think it looks way better. I also added a...
