I like it! Didn't the Warrior have 2 headlights just like your creation. My memory is a bit foggy about 80's ATV's.

That's almost what I was thinking...
3 more beers and it would've made Redneck Engineering Monthly.

Just kidding, thats awesome! 55 less cellulite restriction, now to find a good deck again. :D
