The framing is constructed of 40-tube steel and the exterior skin is 24-gauge steel sheeting. The engine is a 6-horse power electric start, pedal steering, and joystick braking system (the joystick is an original joystick from a THUD jet). The finish body work, paint job, detailing, and upholstery was completed by BrenDesigns.
