Default My "golf cart" build

I figure I would post this up. This is my Golf cart im working on.

Here are the Honda 400 Ex shocks next to the ones from the golf cart



Here are some pics of the frame. I still need to finish up the floor section and also add the front hoop that will hold the front of the body on.





Motor Mounts


My other two tires I picked up

I still have to trim the rear but this should be close to the ride height, it might be a inch or so taller when done. remember these tires are 31x15





and the body bolts onto the frame. I only have 1 bolt on each side for right now, but when its done it will have 2 on each side.

That thing looks like it is going to be an awesome ride. I have a slightly modded cart I keep at our campground, but nothing even close to what that beast will be.

And the rear, the coil's are the front's from a Sidekick

Great build. Mine is styled after one of my balloons but now that im driving a Rumble Bee wannabe-- and the cart needs a paint job -- I was thinking of repainting it yellow and adding some rumble bee stripes and logos with new black/yellow striped seat covers --- maybe even a black top!
