Introduction: Build an Off Road Go-Kart

Last year I built a off road buggy using the Haynes Manual "build your own off-road buggy for £100 or less". This video breifly explains how i do it, the finnished buggy is great fun and if you have acces to the tools needed (welder, grinder......) I would definatly recomend it.
The book can be purchased from  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Build-Your-Own-Off-road-Buggy/dp/1859606423/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1329677413&sr=1-1 or if you are in the USA http://www.amazon.com/Build-Your-Off-Road-Buggy-little/dp/1859606423/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1329757360&sr=8-1

    It's not Euros, you dingbats, it's British pounds. Surely no one is that ignorant? Also, at the time of writing, £100 = $154.06 USD. That's $197.84 AUD for us Aussies.

    Good frame but what kind of transmission did you use? Is it in the the motor set up you got off the bike?
