Hi Adam,

Im glad you liked the "simple wooden" gokart plans on 
www.kartbuilding.net. I see your point how your son would like a steering 
wheel - its a lot more fun indeed and can feel like driving a car.
Im afraid however that there isn't plans for a metal front steering 
assembly for this wooden kart. I did remember seeing a steering setup for 
a wooden kart in a "Woodwork hobby" magazine a good few years ago, however 
I dont have a copy.

I suggest you take a look at the other kart plans on the above website and 
piece the bits together. See:
You could also take a look at the street kart plans on:

Hopefully you will be able to get it working. If you do manage to get the 
kart up and running, feel free to send on a picture to help others.

Best of Luck,

I LOVE your "simple wooden" kit (http://www.kartbuilding.net/Wooden_Go-Kart_Plans/index.html) .  The problem is he wants a steering wheel (kids today!
