Ok to start out this thing started as a 1995 murray ultra with a 12hp briggs and a 30in deck. I got it a few months ago for 60 dollars with the running 12hp briggs on it. I put that on my other rer ''the swamp rat'' and let this thing sit for a few months. A few days after christmas i bought a 5.5hp predator for it to get it running around again. I never really planned on making it this lol it kinda just happened.

When i first got it it looked like that. I debeaded a tire romping it the first day, it wasn't to good at doing any thing either with the stock pulleys and tires.

The other day i put these tires on the back ( the front ones have been on it since i debeaded the stock tire) I figured it was gonna be a off roader

Well i thought what if i lower the steering wheel and the seat. So i did a mock up of what it would look like and kinda liked it.

So i chopped the steering wheel and put the other stock tire on the front

Then yesterday i lowered the front, made the axle solid, and made it direct steer.

Then i lower the steering wheel more and lower the shifter more and black out this side wheels lol.

I also moved the clutch peddle some. So it wasn't in such a bad spot when sitting on it.

All i gotta do now is get bolts to mount the motor, take my pulley i got for it back, and hook up the cheap throttle i got for it at home depot.

Some unaskedfor advise? stretch the thing some. a longer wheelbase will help keep the front end down, and the shiny side up

I'm not sure what your talking about going through because the reason i modded my other one so much is because it didn't do good. For the engine it should be plenty enough power, its a rer its LIGHT and tires are super small.

on the contrary, RER's are USED for wheelie machines. putting your butt AND the motor that close to the rear axle gives it great traction, but little downward weight on the front. This helps to lift the thing over obstacles, and keep the front on top of the mud, but any time ya get some good bite with the rear tires it's gonna try to wheelie. A skitplate that extends out under and behind the motor would help limit the amount of "climb" ya get, and could help keep your butt planted where it belongs, instead of on the ground

See the pic for my avatar?  That's a RER wheelie machine.   We lowered the seat and steering wheel, then relocated the battery up front.  Now it keeps the front wheels on the ground.  You can still do a wheelie, but you really got to try, and it doesn't come up very far.  

See the second link in my sig for a complete build of this one, similar to yours.
