  • "The Wheelchair" (HH187 cart)

    I purchased my dad a HH187 for Christmas with the intention of us building a cart for it together, After I got started bending and cutting the tubing, I just decided to finish up the cart and then give it to him complete. Well here it it 2 months later and I finally finished it up. As usual, I didn't take any build pics.
    I will not bore anyone with the details, but if you have any questions, please just ask.
    Thanks for looking,

          Very nice. Looks like you could add a shelf for a helmet or covered storage under the welder too.

            Thanks Fun. I have been a member on the "motor sports" board for a while, I was surprised that I had to register separately for this one.

            Vice-the original intention was to add a shelf below, but my Dad being 68 and a little big boned, I thought it would be more of a hassle for him to bend over and pick up whatever was off the shelf. He has the welder now, so if he wants to add a shelf I still have a bunch of enough extra expanded metal that he (we ) can use to make one.

            Thanks for the replies.

              Very nice job on the cart. Your Dad is one lucky man for receiving such a nice gift and for having a son like you. One can see you paid attention to the details in that cart. I hope we see pics of more projects, your Dads included

                That's pretty cool.

                It's nice to see something different, yet well conceived.
