    Hey guys, Im new here and wanted to move from the welcome mat this way to get some input on my situation. I recently wrecked my 2012 Gsx-R 1000 that i have had for 5 years so Donor Engine is covered. I also have use of the Brembo brakes and anything else I can salvage from the frame and so on. My problem is that I don't have a tremendous budget, not looking to spend $5K.

    This leads me to my crazy idea that I want to run by ya'll. The Adult Kart Tao Tao Arrow 150cc looks awesome to me and Id love to make a drift buggy or a street legal beast. At this point I can have one delivered to my house for $2K but I have never seen one in person other than YouTube. I am not 100% set on this plan, i'd be ok with any rolling Chassis to work on as long as its within range.

    I have a background in pipe fabrication and welding but do not have a shop at my house to do anything fancy. Please let me know your expert thoughts.

    Welcome.
    Fan of the Atom and that looks like it a fair bit. Not real sure about size for an adult. The motor would be mounted on the swingarm with a short chain. Neither of those are ideal. No way I'd buy it new to hack. And for the $2k you could fab a better chassis, shop smart for some used parts, seats, tires,wheels even brakes.

    Well fellas i appreciate the welcome and the info. I have decided that the Arrow isn't going to give me what I need in a buggy so I have decided to do this...... Within budget and still able to drag race at the track!
