Introduction: SkateBoard Buggy/Ride-On Roller Thingy
This is a little SkateBoard Buggy/Ride-On Roller Thingy that I decided to make. I had a skateboard that I never used, some plywood and a frisbee. Soon I was building and building. Sorry, i didn't take pictures as i was building it because I didn't know it was going on Instructables. So here it is.
THE WOOD IS SCREWED ONTO THE BOARD EVEN THOUGH U CANT SEE THE SCREWS!!!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Attaching the Foot Rest
In this step you need to get a skateboard. Make sure you can sit on it and ride it sitting down. Then find a piece of wood and screw it onto the front as shown.
Step 2: The Handle
Now find a piece of wood that is a little shorter than the foot hold, and attach it as shown.
Step 3: The Seat
Now find a frisbee and cut about a third of it off. Then screw it into the back of the board. This is your seat.
Step 4: How to Ride It
Riding it is simple. Sit on the seat (DUH! XD), put your feet on the foot holder, and grab the handles, wrapping your arms around the outside of your legs. Then find a hill and Ride your contraption down. Turning is as simple as Pushing down on the same side arm and leg and leaning. A good tip is to loosen your trucks so you can turn easier. The position looks awkward, but once you try you will realize that it is really easy.
Step 5: DECORATE IT!
DECORATE IT! I used duct tape, but you can use whatever you want! Eventually I will spray paint the whole thing and replace the wheels and bearings.
