HI fellow OldMiniBikes'rs, this thread is for a custom radio flyer that I'm building. Here in socal there are a lot of car shows and car/motorcycle swapmeets to go to.. at least a couple every month.. one of the cool things to look at while hunting for treasures are the custom radio flyer wagons that people build to haul their finds.. there are from quick lowering jobs up to highly custom and modified ones that aren't even functional anymore lol.
well I decided to jump on the band wagon and make one of my own. I wanted to go custom but not modify the tray at all so I can have full use of it.. one of the main things I wanted to do was to make it look like it had an engine, so at first I was looking for parts to slap together that would resemble one.. then I came across a small ice chest that looked like an engine and thought it would be perfect for a hot rod wagon.. kept collecting parts and finally got on it this weekend.. here are pics of the parts I scrounged up mocked up...
so now that I had it laid out it was time to jump on the frame.. started on the front axle first using small channel.. here are pics of that coming together..
still need to work on the linkage for the spindles but continued instead to build the rest of the frame..:hack::weld:
well this is where I stopped for today.. next up is welding in some mounts for the engine/cooler and finishing the front linkage.. then still have to make the pull handle.. also figure out a paint scheme for it..
will be updating soon.. let me know what you guys think and thanks for checking out my thread..:thumbsup:
