    my custom long travel mini buggy

    Hi!
    Im new on this forum and I just want to show you my ride and see what you guys think about it. Its my own design and maybe a little different from other minibuggies.
    I just completed it a couple weeks ago and it took me over 3 years to build or 2000+ hours. (started this project summer 2005).
    The frame and suspension are made from chromoly 1" tubes, its got an cbr929rr 2001 engine 150hp, fox 2" bypass shocks with total 25" of wheel travel in the front and 28" in the back.
    Watch the video and tell me what you think
    (Im from sweden so sorry for my bad english)

    Very cool video.
    Looks like your definately enjoying it.
    Have you had any bending in the suspension arms?
    Nice job!

    Welcome to MBN! Seems like I saw that on Youtube earlier this year, maybe after it was first finished and before paint.

    Very nice build. The rear a-arm suspension is very different in that inner pivot points are close and allow for long arms.

    What is the wheelbase, track, wieght?

    Very nice! 1" seems a little small for the cage but it's very well laid out and braced.

    Seeing the COLD weather versus the warm weather shots is interseting, you can really see the differance in low speed damping.

    Hello Nicken
    That is such a cool ride! I take it you have looked at american class 1 desert buggies and sandrails for some styling inspiration.
    Where in Sweden are you? I'm in Denmark..

    Good looking rail. You need to adjust the rebound on the double bypass shocks to kick the wheels out faster. If they are FOX, it will be the blue screw on the top of the shock, screw it out 1 full turn at a time until it is correct....
