    XK1000 Single Seat - Assembly
    #1
    Default
    This is a continuation of the XK1000 Single Seat buggy built by ProtoDie. I purchased the rolling chassis and extra's from Protodie. For those familiar with Jody and his work, I was certainly happy once I got it home. What I have left to do is really assembly and detail work at this point.

    Attached are pics on what I have done so far, basically the brake line system routing and installation. I also swapped the rear tires from 26 inch blaster pro's to regular blaster's. Oddly enough the pro's are more like 28 inch tires, the regular blaster's are just below 27 inch. See attached picture of rim and tire shipped to me, still cracks me up how they get that in a box, squared up and all for shipping.

    Next up are lights and some sort of fabrication for a left foot rest when I am not using the clutch. The Coyote has one built as part of the frame and I have found it useful when you get a little out of sorts on the dunes.....

    I am also saving up for a donor engine kit, most likely find something from reputable salvage company. I no longer have space to strip a running bike down and get what I need for this build.....frustrating to say the least....I went from a 4 car garage to a 2 car, and calling it a 2 car is a stretch....rigafratz (for those that remember Yosemite Sam)!

    Roger that, my goal is to have it there next season, if not sooner. Of course, I have a 10 year old boy for additional motivation. He keeps pushing for nitrous, turbo, blower, etc.......gets it from mom.....

    Next time I get to the dunes, I'll let people know when. It would be good to hook up with others in the Oregon area.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I am sure this buggy will put a smile on my face once we get to the dunes. My biggest challenge will be keeping the keys away from my son

    No doubt on the rough ride, those guys at Fullerton Sand Sports know how to pack and ship a tire. They were very helpful with options on this sandrail and have been good to work with on previous projects.
