It is a measure of the our prosperity that kids (I don't know how old he is) can indulge themselves in such frivolous but wonderful activities.
I built a mini-bike when I was 14 (I think); I'll bet kids now are building (and programming) clever IT devices, along with some (like this) who still fancy metal parts.

I like the one driven by the drill motor. My first 'go-cart' was driven by a gas-powered reel lawn mower head with the blades removed. Not "reel" fast, but hey, when you're 10?
From memory, there was a some sort of string attachment to the throttle; .5MPH or (get it ON!), say 2MPH.
