Kristian, there's hope for you.  If nothing else -- the paint on the bike is great.  As for drifting on the ice, and a kart set for high speed ice maneuvers -- yup, you definitely belong in this group.  Welcome to the Forum

Thanxs Jon E

 btw, might yout name be related to Sweden in any way, it sure sounds like it  8-)

 The bike is "covered" in handcut stickers, cheap, easy to fit & easy to change !

 The gokartproject started out asan 1980´s 85cc DINO one year ago, the we changed the frame to an 2004
shifterkartchassies which was like 1000% stiffer = better handling.

The car i have been buildingfor 3 years now, ust got it running tp about 90% these last few months

regards /
...........Kristian

I think it was Gustav Wennerberg that brought the name to "fame".  He was a "Renaissance Man" in Sweden in the 1800's.  My grandfather, August Wennerberg, left Sweden around the early 1910's to come to America, where he was an electrical engineer at Western Electric for his career.  He was from Malmo.  My grandmother, Margaretha Andreasson (with one "s" or two -- your choice) was from Gothenburg, came to America about the same time as Augie, to be a masseuse.  She and he met and married in the Swedish area of Chicago.

Not many people recognize the Wennerberg as Swede -- more commonly I'm asked if the name is German.  Thanks.

Ratliff on the ice -- don't watch out for the holes in the ice, nor the soft ice where the spring bubbles away underwater.
