A different kind of curse...


Everyone has heard of and probably experienced the curse of the new kite. But it would seem there is another curse that is far worse...
I finally got my custom one off race buggy built, and the wind will not blow in a favorable direction,unless it is a blizzard or raining. It seems as if it will not blow at all this season
The curse of the new custom buggy...:mad::mad:
Here is a pic of the offending chariot.

Possibly your curse could be lifted if you post more pictures of the new buggy that you built. It's worth a shot and we would love to see your latest creation.

So you're the one! :mad:

Great looking bug though! :D
To give the impression of motion, ask a friend to take a picture of you seated in the bug while they pull the kite lines tight for you.

That's a great idea. Unlike, the wind, gravity never takes a day off.

Sorry Redsky. Who knew? I will try to get more pics up. This buggy is actually the one I built that converts into a kitebike. Until I build a whole new rear section it cannot convert anymore. But since I had to make a whole new set of forks and downtube for the lenticulars,the old forks and downtube are on the kytbyk rear section permantly. THE KYTBYK LIVES all the time now!
