Just for fun


I inherited a Kayak from a friend who’s moved out to Sydney. It’s an old thing, pretty mucky but fully serviceable. In fact it’s a bit of a classic talking to other paddlers. An Eskimo Topolino (spud), seems to have a cult following.

Just a mock up for the time being, but I’ve been toying with the idea of making a sidecar for the KLR for some time. The spud would make an epic body, and I have a spare front wheel – so why not?? I do intend to use the Kayak properly, so it will need to be easily detachable for paddling.

I’ve a birthday coming up so I might ask for a hydraulic tube bender šŸ™‚ Well it beats a cardigan!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
