    Well guys I finished the sulky, I need to pick up some diamond plate from TS sometime to replace the plate I have there now for the foot plate. Other wise it works great and cost me 45$

    I would turn those axle bolt around, looks like an ankle stabber. Put some raised expanded metal on the top and your good to go.

    Don't get the flat kind, it won't give your boots traction when it get wet.

    Looks good. I would definitely turn the wheel bolts around and you may want to consider a front plate to keep your feet from sliding forward.

    Very nice, much better than I imagined before opening this thread.

    I am going to put a diamond front plate on it and the cage style mesh for the foot bed. I can't turn the bolts around because the washer will not fit on the outside of the wheel the center will not allow it. I tried but the washer makes contact with the wheel and not the hub. I will make guards to go beside the bolts in the future.
