New pictures.


Still need engine on, bull horns, weld on the hubs, bumper, and lock the 820.
The Bull has no front axle on it for the moment, had to wire wheel spindels.

That looks awesome, what did you use to get those 5-lugs fit the 820? is it just another cut out?

Do it! Don't think it'll be all easy but if you can get it right you will love it Smile Couple things to remember/consider:

Gear ratios really come into play with that big of tires. I say this because I've been toying with a full-suspension variation of this idea for a long time and well, big tires make tons of speed on non-stock gearing. As part of an experiment I put 31x10.5-15 on the back of an LT1000 craftsman and the thing pulled almost 60 with a 5" pulley rear and a 6" front. A great example of this issue :



Now he mentions it'll do 40 or so with an opposed twin. That's with a 10 or 12" rear pulley on the thing and a stock size up front. Needless to say, it'll be really hard to keep the thing upright going that fast, no matter how you engineer it... unless it's REALLY wide.

Wheelies are a distinct possibility as well, but another "oh sh**" scenario.

On the other hand, it'd be a lot of fun and get many looks and questions from all types of people. Me, I say build it Smile
