    Can you all help me with a school project?!

    Alright guys, I own a pocket bike.. it's a 47cc engine..

    In science class, we are starting to a new chapter on Simple engines

    I think it would be cool to take the engine of my pocket bike out, and make a barstool go cart..

    Have any of you built one of these before? I am totally open to doing this.. and I think it would be a ton of fun.. but I don't know how to weld

    They sell some like Complete welded frames on ebay... for the barstool go cart. But I don't know like what to get after that...

    can any of you help me?

    here is a picture of the ebay frame..

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Barst...hippingPayment

    what would I need..

    obvious things:

    Sprocket ( what size )
    Wheels ( size? )
    Engine
    Bar stool
    steering wheel
    brakes.. ( any ideas? )
    foot pegs
    chain
    something to turn the 1 wheel driveshaft to 2 wheel..


    can you guys pleaseeee help me!

    thank you, and I appreciate it a ton..

    Mods if you think this should be in other toys section, please move it.. or wherever needs to be moved...

    THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH

    PLEASE HELP !
