PostSubject: My one seater build   My one seater build EmptyThu Feb 13, 2014 8:53 am

Hey Guys,

   i figured i would share my build with you.  It's basically a single seat buggy made to look like a truggy/buggy/etc but, the size of a trophy kart.  Wasn't sure where to put this thread... so, if it needs to be moved, Mods, please feel free.

   the design:  i designed it in google sketchup...   and it's pretty close to what i designed. i had to make some changes along the way for comfort(it was too small).  

the girl in the picture was the first model i came to when wanting something for size reference... she is 5 foot 6 inches tall.

My one seater build Trophy10

Specs:

tubing: 1 inch .120 wall DOM
Height: 50 inches
width: frame is 35 inches and tire width is 58 inches
ground clearance: 10-11 inches
motor:  predator 500  rated around 45hp +/-
front travel: 11 inches
rear travel: 11 or 12 inches



   on to the goods...  summary of build to date:


the start of the frame:

My one seater build 100_0212


front of frame:

My one seater build Frame_17


rear of frame:

My one seater build Rear_b12


so... i'll fast forward to recent build pics.  

front suspension(still have some tweeking to do b/c i will be using different shocks)/steering/dash/lights finished:

My one seater build Led_li10

My one seater build Dash_f11


Seat/gas pedal/Shifter finished:

My one seater build Shifte10

My one seater build Pedal_10

My one seater build Pedal_11

My one seater build Shifte12


rear spool and engine mounting almost finished mounting:

My one seater build Engine11


rear suspension almost finished:

My one seater build Arms_f10


rear suspension mounted along with side plastics:

My one seater build Rear_s10

My one seater build Rear_p12


and i figured i would share one pic for size reference...  this was the engine donor:

My one seater build Compar11

thanks Blu.   yeah, i didn't even get to enjoy that one before it was stolen Craig... so, i built another one. instead of using a pull start and a regular clutch, i decided to give this one electric start and a Torq converter.   it's been 'almost finished' for quite awhile...   just need to paint it.

here's a couple of pics:

My one seater build Testin12

My one seater build Spare_11

My one seater build Brake_12

and here is a video of my first ride on the little thing(beer was involved)... lol   :




both of the campground cruisers were fun little projects.  gave me experience with bending and welding, which is what i wanted.



oh, and the boss and i are driving up to NC to pick up a 13 White Teryx4 this weekend.  after we both test drove a couple...  we decided on this one.  of course, 'i just had to have white' as my wife put it... hence the drive to NC.  :)
