After a couple people flaked on buying it, this was donated to the neighbors daughter(until she outgrows it).


Dropped 4" from stock but still fully functional. The splash aprons were shaped to look correct and molded into the frame after those pictures but I haven't had this for a few years, thus, I have no recent pictures.

Alas, no- most 'Adult' Pedal Cars are nearly $2000-$3000 range...:20:

One possible exception might be this site:

http://americanspeedster.com/

Costs range from a Parts Kit at under $450 (plus buying PVC and investing sweat) to under $20 for the plans alone and trusting yourself to manufacture a few bits yourself) The DIY cars on display at the site are mostly PVC, bicycle parts, a few homemade brackets...and sweat.

Mind you, if we go DIY we could do worse than a Mochet:

Anyone want to translate the plans from French? :rofl:

Here's an updated Pedal car inspired by the Fantom:

DIY might be the way to go, here.
