If you want to drive to Pittsburgh I’ll sell you a 14hp vanguard for cheap, and that looks like the same rack I got screwed on from China no mounting holes and there was so much slop in the input I just put it on the shelf and forgot about it

It’s been a bit since I’ve seen my grandpa and with my current class load I might be able to pull it off.

The rack seems pretty Chinsy but there’s no slop in it. I don’t have a whole lot of confidence about longevity but the Polaris rzr rack may be a good future upgrade

Finally got the ol mk2 out of the trailer and hosed off. Took it out for a nice spin around the property. The steering is almost tolerable here in the flats. At haspin it was absolutely unbearable because the choppy ground. The bumpsteer was awful.

Planning on working on it this weekend getting the new steering installed and likely going to paint. I believe I have an engine solution figured out that I will be pursuing next weekend. I’ve got plenty of time to get it done by buildoff standards, and plenty more time to tweak it for haspin

Hard to belive that Vanny is still going. I guess the "Eco Mode" proved surprisingly reliable, haha.

Hopefully you'll get new the steering worked out, looking forward to seeing it!

I'd take 'er apart, clean up the damage, and bang... A true slant single LOL. I think it'd be pretty cool to have the only "slant single" on the forum. If you get rid of the remaining rod parts, seize the piston in one place, delete that side's valve terrain, I'll bet that thing goes for years.

Are you gonna try and fit the body on better? It ain't looking too sturdy...

Yeah more body mounts are definitely needed. And while a slant single would be...different, it just doesn’t have enough power. And the whole reason I went with a vtwin was the sound. But I have the power and sound of a single.

Anyway, old suspension mounts removed and ground down

Haha I think I’m gonna throw a used rod in this one and run it, as long as my engine deal next weekend goes through.

Got it put back together, steering geometry is MUCH improved! And the frame sits level. Basically stock height again. It was cool low, but not the most practical. Now it’s sitting where I like it.

Steering will be for another day, but for now just enjoy the pics haha

The welds kinda look like poop since it was my first time using an arc welder. But they’ll hold and that’s what matters. Ended up finishing with the mig because at the pace I was learning the arc welder, I wouldn’t be done by the end of the buildoff let alone tonight lol! lol!

Nice work CQ! The angle of the control arms looks way better than it did before, might notice an improvement in handling too!

The improvement in handling was the whole reason for the rebuild haha. But steering geometry is leaps and bounds better. Now my tierods are just a touch too long, even with them adjusted all the way in. Has some toe in that I don’t like. Still a vast improvement

Thanks for the compliment AK
