OK, I've made a lot of progress.  The engine, exhaust, chain drive, gas tank, steering, etc. is all in.  Next step is to complete the wiring and see what this beast sounds like with the dual cherry bombs!  I geared it down from the original motorcycles 100 mph top speed to a new torque enducing 50 mph.  Should have plenty of grunt.  There are a lot of little things to do before it's driveable, but it's a lot closer than it was last Summer.  I'd love to be riding in the Spring.

Oh, the old gas tank in the back will be a trunk for fetchin the mail and holding refreshments as soon as I cut a door in it.

Enjoy,
Randy

Thanks y'all. I appreciate the encouraging words. The idea was to make it look like a 50 year old ATV and I'm pretty happy with it up to this point. I might get fancy and put the original rear shocks from the motorcycle on the front of the tractor to dampen the front end, but I am putting that one on the back burner for now. Also on the hunt for an old hand winch to mount on the front!

I just finished up with some other obligations around the house and can now spend some time on this project again. I'm really looking forward to getting it rideable and seeing what it'll do.

I'll let you boys know when I get it fired up.

Oh, btw - I am looking for a bulkhead type fitting to put in the bottom of the gas tank that will provide a barbed fitting for the fuel line. I'm not having much luck. Any leads for me?

Thanks,
Randy

Cool build!  

You're goiong to want to install a fan inside that front grill I think.  But the charging system on that motor should be able to push a fan, depending on the year of the motor.  Hopefully it's a 12v and not a 6v.

What are you running for a gas tank? If it's a home made tank, best het would be to go to the hardware store and get a 1/4 NPT shutoff valve and install that.  You could get someone to weld or braize a 1/4 bung on the barrel or whatever...

edit: I see the tank. Doesn't it already have a petcock on the bottom? You could drop it and run a snowmobile fuel pump, driven off of the pulse from one of the intake manifolds....

If it was mine, i'd make everything foot controlled and put a nice seat and steering wheel on it.
