Briggs and Stratton Powered Homemade Prototype Buggy
A short video of my homemade 3hp Briggs & Stratton Buggy.
The buggy has an upside down car differential and a 3 speed gearbox. The
primary drive is belt drive and this is used as a clutch. The final drive
is chain drive from the gearbox to the differential. The steering system is
a steering box from a mitsubishi colt and the steering rods have been
modified to suit the buggy. It isn't very fast but can tow a car trailer or
a boat trailer and it goes anywhere.
Wheels of Tomorrow One Wheeler (Monocycle)
One wheel vehicle (Monocycle) built by Kerry McLean and recorded by mr.d of
kimerykreations at Schoolcraft College "Wheels of Tomorrow" in Livonia
For Kerry McLean it all started with the first monocycle he built in 1971
and after his first ride he was smitten with the bug to make it better.
Kerry has been building his unique monocycles ever since then and he
continues to refine his creation with each new model. Kerry has developed
and sold numerous versions of his monowheel, the smallest which is powered
by a 5 hp Briggs lawn mower engine and his largest model is powered by a
Buick V8 engine!

Custom Built Wood Car
Amazing Craftsmanship! Beautiful Custom Built 2009 Wooden Car.
This custom wooden car rides on a 1986 Toyota truck frame and gets power
from a Chrysler 318 engine. It is driven by an automatic transmission and
has merely 1,800 miles on its speedometer. The whole body is made of cedar
and its interior is just as over-the-top as the exterior. I am not the
builder of this car, just the one who made the video.
