Hi Karl,

Im thinking you should get a push kart or pedal kart and jaz this up.
There is an awful lot to begin making from scratch.
I started off with small pedal tractors and put a motor onto it to get
it going itself.
Id say that this will be the best way for you to go, having something
cool looking and driven by a motor.
Best of Luck
