A self build fun machine enjoyable by all ages and abilities. Originally a Popular Mechanics magazine feature in the USA, it was very well received and began the legacy of Mini-Indy which continues today.
All the controls are on the handlebar and it can be powered by a small petrol engine (49cc with electric start/throttle limiter), or battery powered through a 36v motor, or cordless drill powered.
It's basically an easy to build and every build will be different, but the end result will be great fun. An excellent father/sibling project. Could well be as much fun to build as it will be to drive.
