Build a Pedal Car

Learning how to build a pedal car is actually quite easy. Many companies offer plans and kits for their pedal cars. There are many styles to choose from, including fire engines, old time classics, and fun racing style cars. These child sized pedal cars are made of medal and can be painted in any color or design you choose. Average price of a child's pedal car kit is $100. This price will not include any custom detailing you choose to do. When you build a pedal car kit, you will find that these kits come with hardware and instructions making it easy and fun to build. Many kit pedal cars offer chrome plated steering wheels and hub caps.

Pedal cars are a great way to get exercise and many physically handicapped and elderly people can enjoy a pedal car since pedal cars are much more stable than adult tricycles. Adult pedal car kits average $600 but can run well into the thousands, depending on added features. If you decide to build a pedal car, choose a stable, easy access seat for the senior in your life. An added basket or carrier in the rear of the pedal car will give the senior access to groceries and other goods.

When you build a pedal car yourself, you can either purchase a pedal car from a variety of styles and sizes or try to build one from scratch. Directions are available for those that prefer to use salvaged bicycle parts. Even tires off old bikes can work on a pedal car. This can be quite some project to undertake and should only be considered if you have already built a pedal car kit and found it easy to assemble. If you do decide to undertake this task, you will need an electric drill, a heat gun, a glue gun, and a saw and vise for bending hardware. Other common tools will also be needed. An electric wheel is another option that will help the elderly climb hills more easily.
