Well....
I posted awhile back a video of my 2002 honda 300ex.
Tonight i said.. i wanted to build a buggy, and i looked over at my quad and before i knew it i had it cut in half. Shocked
I should have a full rolling buggy frame by monday.

Well I have no input but I'm definitely watching. As far as I'm concerned, more pics the better.

Interesting- for seats you can use a couple car bucket seats - for the floor id get some sheetmetal - could go wild with some fibreglass .

Is that really strong enough? Looks like itd break in the middle if hit hard enough.

Stock tractors are fun in the mud also - drove my agway thru the swamp behind my folks for years - only wish i had chains or AG tires for it - kept getting stuck when the mud thickened up.

I like the general idea. I've been brainstorming ideas on how to make something to carry 2 people in the woods for a reasonable amount of money. If I could find a good deal on a 2wd atv I'd do like you have done, but add 2 seats and a steering wheel. I just have never liked handlebars myself. I'm curious to see how it handles with the extra wheelbase, looks to be almost double.

It's 3'9" longer, Yeah i thought about doing a steering wheel instead but for know i'll try this.
It does have two seats by the way.., the original ATV seat and the new used lawn tractor seat. Laughing

True enough, I didn't even think of the inline seating. Add a fake handlebar for the passenger to hold on to and they'd be all set.

Yeah when i do the cage I'm going to make a bar for the back person to hold onto.
I just got done bleeding the front brakes tonight now they work good.
All of the controlls is the only hard part.., i will have to make the shifter cable controlled.
The clutch and the trottle should be pretty easy, after that i can ride it! Very Happy

It looks very flimsy in the middl but that's a bout it but if I were u I'd sit don't low and have a gas pedal and brake pedal and shifter like a go cart. But it already looks fun and good work so far

I haven't started the cage yet, I will after the controls are done.
It looks just the same as the pics on here already but if you guys want pics of the throttle
Setup and the other controls as i go i will.
