PostSubject: Project Viking Rally/Race mower   Sat Feb 11, 2012 11:21 pm

Hey guys, So if you follow me on yt youll know that i have many projects on the go Razz The other day i got my old viking mower race tractor out and decided to work on it cause my other projects are waiting for parts.

so I got an old tractor many years ago and was gunna restore it and repaint it and stuff but the tractor was way to far gone. So i tore it all down and kept the fenders, hood and other pieces and never did much with em, And later after that i ran into a free honda 80cc dirt bike. I got it running and drove it for about a year, it was having issues like the chain kept falling off, tires going flat, suspension in the front shot and other things so i took the engine off.

About a year ago i had the idea of making a race mower with a dirt bike engine so i figured id start on that. Then i kinda lost interest and it was really an idea and never did much with the thought.

Soo here are pics of the tractor after i repainted it, and the dirt bike.

I have more done on it but thatll be in the next update with pics of wat i did so far.









So this tractor is probably gunna be a rally/race mower. IT wont be dedicated to road or dirt but sorta both. Thats why it wont have slicks or be super low but low enought that it dosnt flip or anything

Sounds fun! I'd drop it around 3 in all corners, lift fenders up to keep stock opening, hot knife the tires, and rip it up. You keeping the steering wheel or losing it for handle bars.

Nice, Remember to paint it, It would suck if it starts rotting apart in a year or two.

K guys , so i did some more work on the viking. Got the steering pretty well done, Just a couple lil things. Got the nerf bars all bent up they just need to be welded on and mesh put in em. The fenders are mounted. Just small stuff too do but im getting close. really enjoying this project!













Well guys, Lemme know what you think, love hearing your opinions. Probably wont get too much done now cause the snow and weather.
