magicman37 alright ill see thanks for the ideas i gotta find a motor that suits it and im off to the races thanks for the help

swamp jeep Yeah the clutch is automatic. Three things to hook up are the trottle, the shifter, and the brake. It was fairly easy to setup. For the shifter we just used some clevis mounts and alltread. That's the only thing we had to rig. The trottle hooked up to the existing linkage. I do recomend putting some sort of suspension on the front. All those ElcheapO 4wheelers you see, seem to have honda clone motors in them. Not sure about the gearbox.

Good Luck

Is that like one of those automatic clutches the yamaha big bears have or is it totally automatic?... and that is what im talking about a nice thrasher to mess around in

jeepr Trampoline tubing isnt that strong.... and as far as the dirtbike motor goes, good luck..... alot more involved than you think. Figuring out how to move the shifter, clutch, brakes, motor mounts, etc. Honestly if you were using real tubing and not thin trampoline parts it could work with alot of fab work.....

GoldenSahara00 depends, how many kids is that trampoline rated for?

actually some friends/people I know make and run something like that, they buy lawn mower engines and use them, and they run at least 40 or faster. you just have to figureout how to get the pulleys and everything to work right. Im sure a dirtbike motor would work too though

AzTJ Eh, ok.
02-12-2011 10:48 PM
magicman37 nah itll be alright. if i break it so what the goal is a beater to trash however i see fit.

AzTJ I highly doubt trampoline tube is going to take the abuse 40MPH can dish out.

A toy...

Hey everyone, not really about jeeps but i was thinking about a buggy to ride around in. I have some trampoline tubing for the frame, but i was thinking for a motor i'd want a dirtbike motor not sure how to go about it just seeing if you guys have some ideas to bounce off. Basically i'm looking for a go kart that'll do 40 lol. Something that really truly is home made. I'll post pics once i get going but i need some good ideas first.
