Hi Tony,

Sorry for the slow reply.
Your email made be laugh! Indeed there are very spoked wheels that used to 
be on baby carriages around these days!

I suggest getting spoked wheels from a small childrens bicycle. They 
should do fine. Try and get the small ones, 12" in diameter (300mm). You 
may need to remove the axle and bearings and make it fit an axle.

Take a look at the following wooden kart plans (albeit use a lawnmower 
engine) which go over the sourcing of parts and wheels for this type of 

Best of luck,
