Nice score. I would build a low cost trail machine pulley swapped to 20-25mph and maybe with smaller tyres to lower the centre of gravity. Sell the deck and bagger to make some money.

Take a look at stretches and therainbowboxer’s machines. Look around on YouTube and the forum and see how they’re built. The basic idea is lower the center of gravity, reinforce the frame a TON, lock the rear end, and an internal gearing change. Just the final drive. Then run some 1:1 pulleys and you have a machine safely capable of roughly 50 miles per hour...like 80kph I think

I wouldn't build a FF copy, but I would take a few of his tricks.
I would put thin ags on the rear, put a v-twin on it, big pulley swap, 25ish, snorkel, dual pulley-clutch (the stock Murray clutches are junk), maybe doc lock it if need be, and I'd paint it an aggressive bright red.

Looks nice.  That blue looks the same as Kal's!  Very nice.  I like the Blue/Black combo.

Also, I think an off roader and trail machine may be the same?

Please don't make another Fearlessfront clone. Please don't make this even reminiscent of Fearlessfront's murray.

Good luck...

Yep, I read to the end of the original post. LOL

One is an 18 horse, missing the shroud, good compression and should run. The other is a complete 16 horse that has no compression. Needs a rebuild and I’ll probably put some goodies in it whenever I rebuild it


Anyway sorry for thread jacking

I’ve got a question though, does your computer translate everything to German for you, and you reply in German? Does the site show up in English and you use google translate? Or are you learning English well enough to read and respond in English?
