PlasmaDan's Build Project Archive Over the years I've worked on a lot of different types of build projects. I have decided to share some of the highlights with you all on here. The earliest project photos I was able to dig-up are from 2005 (age 15) so that's where this thread starts. The dates shown are the completion dates of each project (or best estimates) and some of the older photos are not the best quality. I will use this thread as an index for some existing threads and to share any future projects. Go-kart Project (June 2005) Originally started by my dad a few years earlier, this is one of my first notable projects. I took-over the project after my dad's business took-off and he became too busy to work on it. Built mostly from 40 x 1.5mm square box-section steel, the go-kart chassis is roughly based on an F1 stock car (apparently). My dad was an F1 stock car driver back in the day so I guess he got the inspiration from that. It's powered by a modest Honda 90cc 4-stroke 3-speed engine; salvaged from an old Honda moped. It features a roll-cage, front & rear hydraulic brakes, full suspension, electric starter and low-power headlights. All the parts are salvaged from various donor vehicles or found around the workshop. After the project's completion in 2005 the go-kart was featured in the local news paper. Day 1 of the build... Rear axle and suspension work... The basic frame and suspension roughed-out... This is as far as my dad got with the build before abandoning it. You can see some of the other contraptions we had in the background, unfortunately there's not many photos of those. After taking-over the project I worked on it mostly at weekends, as I was still attending school. I still have this go-kart to this day; in storage. I have thought about selling it but I'm not sure I could part with it, it's worth more to me than any sum of money. Unfortunately I don't really have anywhere to use it so it's just gathering dust. Dan.
