Neat, but it looks like she wanted seat belts

What did it start out as?

The front seat does have a seat belt.    It started as a scrapped J.D. 110 square fender.  The drive unit is from a Weber Weeder bean buggy. The floorboards were off a scrapped  W.H. B112. lawn tractor. The disc brake is from an off-road  go-kart.  The rear seat is off an Ariens ZTR. mower.  The front seat is a heavy duty suspension seat from a lift truck.  The wife says she felt like a hood ornament, but she liked it.  We had it at a show last weekend and going to another this weekend and next.    It'll be fun in the next village parade.      Rick

Really neat design, looks very stable and pretty quick too.

Have you clocked it yet?

Buy her a mermaid costume and then she can say she feels like a figurehead on a sailing ship?

EDIT: I was going to add a pic of one... Until I realized I couldn't find a G rated pic.

How about buy her an old timey dress and she can say she feels like a figurehead on an old ship?image.jpg

That seems to drive really smooth and steady. I'd say you've done a great job grafting together all those different parts. :thumbs:

Looks a little FAST for going between rows at most shows I've gone to!  Hope it can go slower too??  Think I would put on front bumper and belt...."just in case"!   More shows aren't allowing just anything to be used now days. Golf Carts are still a favorite. 2 wheeled and Gator type in the bigger sizes aren't allowed at some now. Have to show proof of insurance and be 16 and have driver's license and all kinds of things like that now days. Be Careful!

You need to spring load that front seat, that way when she telling you how to drive you can hit the eject button.



Well maybe not.
