The problem is, i don't even know where to start. I'm trying to make it in AutoCAD, but i don't know where to go from there once i'm finished. Please help me

you fuck just make it. are you that retarded?

My advice is don't use AUTOcad, make it from scratch. get some pipes and a welder and have fun. You can use parts from old bikes. Just go to goodwill or any thrift shop and buy some old mountain bikes and use the gears or whatever. Parts from an old lawnmower would work (stering system, chains, seats, etc.)

If I were you I would just invest that money in building a go-kart. It's pretty easy really.

Or you can make one of these (copy and paste link in browser)

no need for pedals. A helmet for the timid perhaps.

Weld two identical bikes together and then connect the steering with a tie rod.
