KART

Post by Sepi » Fri Sep 15, 2017 3:18 pm

I didn't have enough encourage to buy a HD Fatbob, or enough money to buy an Ariel Atom, so I had to improvice something my own. I have done a 1952 vintage split and a sleeper 1959, so this should be something different. Here in Finland to get a road legal vehicle is not that simple and the original car must be there still at least 51% + lot of rules and regulations by our Trafic Safety Office. I didn't give up, but did some CAD Solidworks pland and negotiated with an officer some months - and my -74 1303S started to be, as I want to call it a KART.

First there was an idea:

Then some grinder:

Then some rough rip off:

Then some new parts:

More parts:

And after some pipe bending and welding, the chassis started to look like car:

Colour will be Audi Nardo Grey with some yellow details

Next year the end of May is my deadline for this project. So keeps me busy :-)

Will the fenders be fixed to the body or suspension?

Woah - I almost missed this thread. Awesome work so far - please post more pictures! With the amount of work you've done, it wouldn't have been much of a stretch to make this a mid-engine...or would that be a deal-breaker for street legal modification?

This makes me want to just cut off all the bodywork on my build.
