Knex Forklift With Back-Wheel Steering

About: I've been making stuff with K'nex since I was really young. If you have anything you'd like me to make, let me know and I'll try to make it and then make instructions!

This is  the second forklift I have made, the first one could hardly lift anything, this one can lift a lot more, and has steering, so I hope you like it!

    that does not look like a fork lift (more like a dork lift)

    You've got the fork-lift about right there, esp. the rear-wheel steering. No they aren't pretty.
