Old Style Go-carts

I saw a really heart warming sight today. A father with his two children and the go-carts that he’d made for them. Two really fantastic pieces of engineering. Both were made of plywood and had brakes and a steering mechanism worked by a wheel and rope. Apparently the most difficult things to source were the wheels. There was a four wheel ‘cart’ using wheels from an old lawnmower and a three wheel cart using wheels from an old mobility scooter (only three wheels because he couldn’t find four!). Very inventive and clever. It’s a shame that I was so fascinated by the ‘carts’ that I forgot to take any pictures.
