Default Re: J & S buggy pedal powered?!

Thanks folks getting there with a long way to go........

So after a couple of big days finally got the rear end sorted, originally had the
drive wheels out beyond the body. Revised this they now sit nicely in the space
where the VW engine would have sat. So in a sense have the motor where it
should be! Next sort out the chain drive, plan is to have two idlers up to the pedals.

The outer wheels take some of the load, hoping most of the weight comes onto
the middle drive wheels, all four have suspension, outers leaf springs, inners
coils. Scored the outers off a children’s pram, the inners off an old school
suspension mountain bike.

After the drive system is sorted front end and steering.

Any tips, criticism gratefully accepted.........?
