Default Kids Wagon Rebuild

Picked this up at an estate sale over a year ago. Tore it apart and never went any further. Kiddo is 17 months so not a stroller fan any longer and itís festival/beach season. Started life as an off brand red wagon with wood sides. Not in bad shape but not too pretty and not super sturdy. Both of those will change. Not a full photo but an idea of the starting point

A little paint on everything.



Preview of old vs new



Go kart hubs fit perfect but just needed a pvc spacer. Will be painted black.

Can you build one of these for a forty-something fat kid and take me to the beach?

Cool build!

Thanks guys. Didnít get a picture but I reinforced the underside with some square tubing. Was a bit flimsy for my taste so I tied the front and back wheels together which also supported the tub. Raised it up 3/4Ē too which makes the tires look better. Most importantly, one happy customer
