This is what is left of a chopper I built over the winter. It is an 800 suzuki.

I needed a motor for my 220 bayou.....so there you go! I have the motor mounted, now there are about a million other things to get it finished. I think it will turn out pretty cool though.

Cool project. I have a parts bayou and am looking at getting a runner. You don't see much about them, either stock or modified.

They are both driveshafts. It will be as simple as connecting the two with a home made shaft.

What do you need to make yours a runner? I still have everything for this one, The motor needs rebuilt though. It had no compression.

Locked up motor, no seat, no wiring, pretty much just a parts bike. I have a cheap running one lined up, just haven't had time to go check it out.

Got the back bone (top) of the frame, the tank mounted, and the steering done today. It is all just tacked together right now. I guess I will connect the two drive shafts next.

More than likely I will put some of the body back on.....only with severe fender trimming. I want it to have a "sporty" look and the stock bayou plastic is anything but "sporty". I also don't want to cover any of the motor because that is the coolest thing about this bunch of junk.


Here is a pic with the rear plastic on. The front will not fit in any way form or fashion. Also there will be a radiator on the front.

Those tires are AWESOME! I used to follow the big boy 4-wheelers around on my little bayou.
