This all American peice of redneck ingenuity will be the son of a Cub Cadet 2135 and various bits of a Honda Fourtrax. Powered by a Briggs and Stratton 16hp vanguard v-twin driving a peerless 820, and fueled by bald eagle piss and tears of the EPA. Full suspension will be incorporated with IFS from the Fourtrax in the front and a custom swing arm in the rear for the transaxle. The peerless 820 will be turned around and flipped upward for shaft drive. The clutch will either be a disc clutch from an older cub cadet or a double belt system with 6 inch pulleys for minimal slippage and a spring strong enough that Chuck Norris couldn't push it down. The steering will be custom built to eliminate play because speed should reach up to 40mph. Custom 2 inch dual exhaust will some out the sides and dump under the footboards. Guards will be made to keep feet on the footboards and handles installed next to the seat. Custom front and rear bumpers will have shackles for towing and led light pods. If possible a tachometer will be installed on the console and governor removed from the engine. A few other small things may be in store for it as well.

40mph? Is that an internal gear swap I hear?

Boy, only 23 hours in and the buildoff is already intense

Hopefully yes, there will be an internal gear swap if time and funds allow it.

Got the hydro transaxle out of the cub frame today and mocked up the peerless 820.
