Another Zebra Kite Buggy...

Recommended Posts

We've got another Kiter amongst us, my father :good: 

He's purchased his first buggy, a Zebra!  Just when you think you've seen it all someone comes up with a great new idea, the original owner modified the footpegs in a way I had never thought.  He used small mountain bike bar extensions/verticle grips attached to the straight footpeg then drilled a hole and mounted the heel strap.  For anyone else that has a Zebra and wondering, it's actually a really simple, non-destructive modification.

So my father inspired by John Holgate's $30 backrest has decided to build one for Sandy Point, however he has started a little fancier ;) 
He's used these 25mm display rack clamps which he found online.  The tube in the pictures is just a test tube to show how they fit, i'm waiting for photos of the finished modification.  I followed John's method up above one year at Yeppoon and put a backrest on @roblukin's buggy back in 2013, from what I know I think it's still going sold on the back of his buggy.

I think it did say "the word" however @jhn.holgate has been touching up photos with profanities. LOL

Geez, I had to look hard to see what everyone was talking about.  Nothing to see here, go about your business, folks.

      Got a low-wind run at Venus bay yesterday and it was GREAT!
      The wind was dead on which opened up the whole of the bay (all 20 plus km of it), and although the tides weren't really low, there was still plenty of beach to be had. Interestingly I had more dog attention than usual - I think because the kite is black and looks more like a huge bird of prey. Fortunately I was going pretty slow when I nudged the Collie. As for the Jack Russell - he just took one look at the kite and ran . . . and ran . . .and ran.
      The Spleene was every bit the low-wind monster all the reviews indicate.
      Hope the video gets you in the mood!
