A friend is restoring a Model T replica kart, the wheels were plastic, all had failed. I split one and put it on a board, will have them cast in aluminum, if anyone has a need let me know.

Those are beautiful and important. If one of the plastic spokes had broken while the kids were riding it they could have been hurt. Great work all around.

I'm sure they'll show up now, internet searches turned up one wheel, the company no longer produced them.

I worked at a plastic injection company that produced them 40 years ago.
i added the strengthening ribs around the rim in the mold.
the plastic deteriorates after about 5 yrs, i'm glad to see you cast them.
