So im completly new to the buggy world. Been around quads and drag bikes for ever. So im wanting to build a mini rail. Want it to look like a full size long travel car but the size of a rzr 4. This will be a 4 seater. I have a company here in az building the chassis. What im looking for is places i can pick up he rest of parts i will need IE pedals, rear end, rims and tires, steering wheel, shocks etc. Also any input on what size of street bike kotor would be helpful. Also what size rims. Just starting this project so all info would be great. This will be a IRS rear end so any advice on where to pick up parts for that woukd be extremely helpful. Thanks guys.

Just thinking out loud here.

If the place doing the chassis does not already have GOOD leads on places to get the parts I would be pretty leary.

Most places that do fab work can get better deals than most guys on the street.

Edit: Not to mention if they ought to know of the parts BEFORE they build the chassis!

You build from the wheels in (or at least design from the wheels in!) Building from the chassis OUT will make for a lot of issues.

Going from the wheels IN makes for much better and easier time of it!
