Spoiled Kids stuff
Permalink  
 


we moved alot as my kids were growing up never had a stable place as every year rent would go up or owners would sell out. Didnt buy this place until my kids had grown past building stuff for them. We raced AFX slot cars any where we could set up a track. By the time we got settled down here my youngest got my vintage muscle bike collection. It grew to around 30 bikes now we built those while working on cars. His first junk yard rat low rider comes to all shows with us kids and dads love it.

I've wiped out, the guy I sold this to wiped out and broke 6 ribs, the guy who bought it off of him wiped out. The moral of the story is people get dumb sitting on a barstool........Especially when it goes 35-40 km/h..
This is #1 0f 3 that I've built.

the only reason he grabs them is 'cause your probably hogging the controller and he want's a turn........

LOL...There is a lot of truth to that......reliving my childhood. We had the old Eldon sets. 4 or 5 of us would put all our sets together and cover the whole basement.

30-S6 your stuff is awesome. Do you have plans for the bar stool rig? Always want to kill myself on one of those. Even the wagon with the pop case sides is great!!! Did up a pedal car for my son a few years ago. Gotta do one for my daughter now.

I tried putting in a link to the plans. I tried it and it kicked me back to the main page of this forum. Sorry I don't know what went wrong.
As far as the pop case wagons those are my brainstorm. They are vintage popcases that have been streched using the wood from the bottom.... You guys in southern Ontario may see the red wheeled Coke wagon and the woodgrain/purple stroller at carshowes or meets, as one went to Toronto and the other to the Goderich area...
