PROJECT - Emil's Billycart Evolution 1978-2019

Emil has recently purchased a bunch of parts to modernise his billy cart - and now it's certainly back to the future!

The billy cart is virtually completed and almost ready for a test rum. Just need the 40wheel spacers which are on the way and two brake cables which I will have on Thursday.

My current billycart which I am very happy with has evolved from – see below.

Thank you for all your help. I will certainly tell anyone who wants to know where I got my parts from

• Hand brake on RHS pneumatic tyre

1979
