A buddy of mine asked me to help him out with a new toy. Sure I said after all he helps me out alot. So I looked up some parts and this is what I came up with.still need to paint and weld a few parts on.

Looks good!

I've seen a few made with a steel tractor seat. They look really cool

I played with one of these a couple years ago. I bought it because it had a decent modded predator on it, and a nice live axle set up. Bought the whole thing for 200.

I messed around with it for a couple weeks before I took it apart and trashed the frame(it was a modified frame).

Well, the thread has been sanitized, no reason for it to go away unless it has to.

Chris, this thing is wicked. I bet it'll feel like you're doing a hundred, being that close to the road.

If you feel like it, I'd love to see some of the maiden voyage.

Want to say Sorry for post made earlier. I was taken wrong using my Judgemental ways. I'm sure these rigs are fun for many. Not something I would make, but that's just me. Didn't mean to start an issue. I'll be more careful in posting, and didn't mean harm. I apologize. I am nice guy, just quick to give opinion before thinking thru.

Put on your helmet, fasten your seat belt and go for it!   That left side already looks like you were racing at Bristol.       Rick
