#Buildoff2024

This is my entry for the 2024 build off! 
The plan is to take this 1 by 1 angle iron and make a custom frame that fits the craftsman gen 2 body panels. I will make this a lowered build, either fliping the transaxle or making a jackshaft out of a lawn mower spindle. I will pull the trans out of my old craftsman mudder, and use the pictured 12 hp engine. I will also be using other parts of the craftsman to, like the front tires off it are going to be the backs.

Ok, I will get pictures later, but I have started work on it!
Due to complatcations and difficulty I have decide not to lower it, instead I took a craftsman frame and am putting the transaxle and motor ( I found an 11 hp that I got by trading a buddy for my oppy) and then I will do all the mods needed to turn this thing into a right bussin rally mower. I will still call it the lawn dart btw.

Ok, sorry for the long time no update, first things first, we have handle bars!
[24] PK26's Lawn Dart Img_0113
[24] PK26's Lawn Dart Img_0114
Sorry bout the terrible quailty pictures, I didn't use the dslr this time.
I got it running, the carb bowl had to be soaked in vinegar, and the rest had to be sprayed with brake clean. I haven't done the wiring yet, so that is the next thing, however I test drove it by starting it with booster cables to the starter, and found it way to slow, only goes like 25 kmh. also the tiny pulley in the front causes way to much slip, making it almost undrivable. The rear pulley was welded by my brother, He welded it crooked so that has to be replace. The belt guards I made kept the belt on for the 2 hour test drive, so that is awesome! Danceparty So it now needs:
-Bullbar
-higher pulley swap
-wiring
-tires
-testing
-brakes
-some type of throttle on the handlebars.
-maybe speakers, lol.
On a side note, those handle bars are awesome for racing around the field/lawn!

Looking good, I would suggest a pad of some sort where the handlebars comes together with the steering shaft.  I remember back when I was a kid riding my bike how it would hurt hitting that spot.  I quickly got a handlebar pad for that area.  Can't imagine how it would feel going tractoring speeds, plus we aren't little kids anymore.  LOL

Looks sweet! Digging the steering setup! To add the MightyRaze's comment, its true! Im a avid snowmobiler, and have a friend who unfortunately smashed some teeth out after bouncing off the middle of some handle bars. Quick cheap easy fix, is a pool noodle, or some pipe insulation taped around er!
