My Dad made one sort of like that when I was a kid!

Santa used to drive it in to the Fire Brigade kids Christmas party

f**kin cool!! 

I built one a few years ago for the 'kids'

I put a 125cc farm bike motor in it, machined out some wheelbarrow wheels and welded a boss in them with bearings. It finished up being a bit of a handful of a thig, I had to weld it into first gear so they didn't kill themselves.   
I remember flying up the road on it one day and into my driveway on the Farm and flipping it halfway up the drive. 

They're a load of fun!

Don't get me started on the michief we got up to in the cart we had,  nor the gnat (3 wheeler)... you would be surprised how far you can get one of those to plane across a river  eek     




sad but I think kids don't know what real fun is any more

I had a son who the neibours rang me about he was at the top of our drive which was really steep and lying on a skateboard and going down the drive and across the road.... no helmet etc he was 4yrs old.

So I was a good parent and went out and supervised and watched for traffic.

We were on a bus route and a busyish road. better he was safe with me there.

I let my kids do alot of things cos I ddint want them to be cotton wool kids.
