Posted (edited)

Thought id check and C what everyone workin on that not airplane related, i got bored and the door on my garage is stuck shut, ill have to get outside and fix it when it warms up. -29 this am here. 

So my son and i got this "crazy shop" :bugeyes:idea to build a side by side from an old 97 Honda 4wheeler and parts of a yerfdog gocart i had layin around. (They r too spendy to buy for my blood) we cut the frame in front of motor in half and streched it 55" and started weldin it up, bending tube, fishmouthing tube, welding tube, hahahahaaaa guess we will end up with 4x4, electric start, revese, superlow and 4 more forward gears, right now has 25" ITP tires and ITP rims, reciver tube mounts for a movable winch from front to back. Wheel base is same as a 4wheeler for width, and 8' wheelbase, so will still go in back of a pickup, Going to install lexan windsheild, roof, lights, seats of course, enclose front area, ect, good start so far from the junk i have laying around the house and mine.  Here a few pic, from the frozen brain goldminer. 

PS..... not from WV but i like it down there. Born and raised in Fairbanks Ak. Hahahaaaa

Sounds to me like some hillbilly moved to Alaska! Sure you're not from West Virginia? You might be my long lost cousin Buck
