"A man must keep a little back shop where he can be himself without reserve. In solitude alone can he know true freedom."
-Michel De Montaigne 1588

The Chassis

I started off easy with the axle spindles.

Drive sprocket and brake drum mounted on wheel.

Another view

Steering kingpin tacked up, ready for welding

Front axle pivot

Rear axle with spring bracket

Basic frame is complete

A "rolling chassis"

One of the problems I had was reversing the steering from the original design. This was my solution.

It seems to work well.

Here's another picture.
