Watkins set out to break the world record before he started building it. He researched details of the current record holder as well as the legal requirements that apply to the construction of motor vehicles.
Watkins used a coin-operated children's ride, which he repainted, for the body and repurposed a chassis from a Shanghai Shenke quad bike. He used rear tires and wheels from a Honda Monkey motorcycle. The front wheels were custom-made to fit tires from a 1939 Brockhouse Corgi paratrooper’s mini motorcycle.
