1881-F Metro Center Drive, Reston, VA
Note: Moved from August 23 to October 5th to give us time to finalize a BOM and perhaps do any pre-machining that is necessary to get this up and running in one session.
As an offshoot of our Metals 102 and 103 classes where we build an adult sized go Kart, this session is a 4 hour session to do one thing: build a PVC tube go Kart for kids. The rules are simple:
1) You go get your own materials from Home Depot/Lowes/Ace/Northern Tool/Harbor Freight
2) You get your own wheels, motor, etc.
3) I show you how to build it
4) This is a parent and child activity. The parent should actively participate and I will be building this with my daughter, which means we encourage parents to bring their daughters as well as sons!
The materials cost should be somewhere on the order of $300 depending on where you shop and how well you scrounge, so you are encouraged to hit the yard sales and Craigslist to get lawnmowers (wheels, throttles, cables, engines), and other parts -- under some conditions you can build this thing for a lot less than $300. A Bill of Materials is forthcoming. Anything we can't buy off the shelf we have to fabricate, so remember, the more stuff you find the better (for example, if you find a kiddie pedal car, can we use the steering wheel?)
Refunds offered if:
Payments you make go to the organizer, not to Meetup. You must make refund requests to the organizer.
I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
