If I didn't already have 50 other projects in line...

I like that better than the scooter. Is the engine to scale? Now how to shift it and fuel tank. I guess it could be built into the fender

I would think that gear reduction chain drive, and the tiny rear wheels would limit that cart's theoretical top speed significantly. It would still probably be scary as hell though.

Some think that if your beetle has a padded dash, it's an engine donor. Some think that if it has push button door handles, it's a boat anchor.
Do what you want. Ignore the elitists. Drive your VW. Enjoy life.

Rode hard and put away wet..LOL....Honestly looks pretty solid though. $700 for a solid shell, title and probably a decent pan is not bad....
