What info do you need? It was built in the 80's by a ultra light company to run against the Hondas. Rotex 440 with a comet torque converter. Weber brakes. A diff with left/right brake peddles. The do sell a kit to lock it up

All I know is that I found one on craigs list for 900. A guy on another site wanted it so I got it for him. One guy in each state took turns towing it to chicago. He got it running and had it at our bash. Its fast for being so small. About 70mph. It's built for flat track it seems from the short arms. Not at all a trail buggy. Comet has all the clutch parts in stock and a good price. My buddy has info on who he got the parts from. If you have any specfic questions I can ask him and I'm sure he'll help. He better, 10 hours of drive time and a bunch of gas just to get it in Georgia. Free:eek:

Also that stearing wheel is out of a ultra lite plane. It's cast and has all the electrics in it. If you lock the rear you can change the brakes from left and right to front and back. The frame is rolled not welded for a large part. I mean its one tube from the rear around to the rear

I have a eipper quicksilver dune buggy. You are the first person to say you have one. We have been trying to sell ours, for a while now. Mine is silver in color. No one has ever heard of them. Mine runs excellent it didn't have any problem except the brakes but that was an easy fix.

Hi there... I'm new to this sport... just had one of these Eipper's given to me with a Polaris 880 in it, but only runs on one cylinder, regardless of which order the carbs are installed.... but it came with a Honda CBR 600 engine and a bunch of other parts and the thought process to make the swap... anybody having any experience with this type of exchange, your advice would be most welcome... I have a new mig welder, am waiting on the bandsaw and drill press, and already in possession of the 30 years of experience as a pro mechanic.... now looking to become a first class fabricator with a new toy.....

Thanks,

Alan

It would be a lot easier to just get another Polaris 440 engine, they are a dime a dozen.

Post some pics of what the rear end looks like, so I can get an idea of how involved that kind of swap would be.

I have a really nice quicksilver SR440 dark blue runs great!!! I have found very little information about these buggys. But they seem really cool and fun and fast. I have found lot of parts available for the rebuild parts on line cheep in price.

There's a forum called Buggynews or something like that. They may be a source for info.
