Dodge baquet ish build.
« on: 21 November 2019, 06:57:26 am »
So I thought I would build a cyclekart. Something simple that wouldn't take too long. The inspiration was a 1935 Dodge baquet.

Nice choice, something a bit different again for the ranks.
And from your sketch it would appear to scale very well for a CK.
I approve :-)

That's a nice looking car. I would suggest spending a bit of time on figuring how you get you, and the drive package in there though.

I had some 2mm sheet cut to my graph paper drawing which was just measured off the sketch. A few strips of 30mm x 2mm for the top and bottom of the chassis. I used some old shelving brackets to jig it.

Keep it simple went out of the window, there's gonna be miles of welding ahead. Tacked up with front cross member and a rear which will be the seat support.

Front leaf springs fitted. 1 1/2" × 3/16 × 20" They feel like the correct poundage.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I have no idea if the rear leaf springs will work properly or just keep chucking the chain off. I had a look at a few chain driven cars with leaf springs at the nec classic car show a couple of weeks ago so  it can be done. The diff is done and now almost have a rolling chassis. Why didn't I just keep it simple.

Thanks again for the nice comments. Hub adapters done and mocking up the rear brakes.
