Partially Assembled Pedal Car Chassis
Details: Black, powder coated, steel tubing with hard plastic pedals, this partially assembled pedal car kit chassis needs very little to complete. The front and rear axles, bushings, steering mechanism and the pedal push rods with installed pedals are already assembled from the factory.

CHASSIS ASSEMBLY TIPS
The C&N Reproductions, Pedal Car Chassis Kit is very easy to build and goes together quickly. Most of the chassis kit is pre-assembled and designed to assemble quickly needing just the Pedal Pushrod Hanger, Steering Assembly and Wheels installed.
To help make assembly even easier and to see what the kit consisits of, we have provided detailed photos of these assemblies along with a couple of building tips
This chassis kit is designed for use with C&N Reproductions, Wooden Body Kit for pedal cars, you can also design and build your own custom pedal car body is if you so desire. Important: Study the included assembly drawing closely before and while building the pedal car chassis kit.
To begin the pedal pushrod hanger assembly is attached to the chassis and the pedal pushrods to the hanger.
Next before installing the steering mechanism, a pedal car body with a dash or cowling designed to accept the steering shaft support must be attached to the pedal car chassis. Then the steering components can be installed.
Last Step: After the body is permanently mounted, the wheels can be attached with the included locking cap washers.
