      Here are some update shots of the stroller..This is all done with a drill press welder and basic hand tools and no machine work ...what ever we can find in the scrap box.. the coils are from an electric wheel chair and the moon tank is made from 2 broken aluminum ball bats...Talk about "field expedience" May not be true to scale but its still cool.... more to come..

    I was thinking about this build earlier today. It's looking really cool, glad you caught us up man. That's one lucky young lad, cruising the strip in a sweet ride with grandpa AND might get to meet Big Daddy Don Gartlits. Gotta admit, I'm kinda jealous!

    Rock on little man!!!

    Insane Dude!!! This really should be a 15 speed peddle car instead of a stroller. How about some disc brakes with cable control on the push bar?
