I used a door hinge. Seems ok. Well it hasn't fallen off yet.

I, have in the past, used T hinges, bit why do you need to hinge the seat back? Access to the compartment?

i have come up with an idea for the hinge that i should get done today. a video will be out with how i built the frame and how I'm going to attach it to the floor when its done. (note im getting rid of the base frame as it is just unnecessary weight).

Here is another video.

Please share anything you like or don't like about how I make bits and how you think I can improve designs as this will be really helpful for the rest of the CycleKart build (feel free to be harsh). Also share any design ideas you think would be interesting in my modern style CK that I haven't thought of yet or versions of what I have previously said that you think would look cooler done differently.

Thanks,

I like your idea for the folding seat back. The hinge looks like it will work well and is nice and simple. Good skills young man.

Thanks Jim. My first idea of having a seat base frame attached to the back was so overkill and heavy so I am glad I got rid of that one!

Please share your opinion on the design for mounting and what material the bracket should be made from/thicknesses. Please also check out Wittenstein's website @ www.wittenstein.co.uk they make some great products.

Well done Marek, I am impressed with the size, I suggest you might use a hinged platform for the chain adjustment. I would use steel only because I find it easier to weld, I dont think you will have to worry about weight to much.
cheers, Geoff

Excellent video Marek and I think your kart is showing us the way forward to the future. When I clicked on your link to wittenstein it came up with some lawyer site.

Nice one MAREK like the motor and gearbox setup. It might be a good idea not to mount them to low if we are all going Off Road at the venue that Rys has organised.

I am going to re-upload the video with the correct link as well because the wrong one is on the screen for about 2 minutes. I will modify my earlier post so that it has the correct link.

Waiting for some bits and pieces so i can continue the drivetrain and finish the seat. Had some scrap large sheets of paper, masking tape and some spare time so thought i would mock up the bodywork around the cockpit of the Delage. I used masking tape to create the rough curves in the same way curved stitching is achieved. then stuck paper to the back and cut the curves. this is just an approximate template before making card templates for the panels when i get on to making the bodywork.

Its coming along nicely Marek. Are you going to make the real body from aluminium? It looks like you will be sitting low in the kart which is how i like it.

The bodywork will be aluminium for the most part and then i will have the bonnet side panels and boat tail made out of fibreglass so i can get some more complex shapes.
