    Hi ya all! New to the forum and been on here researching for a future buggy build. I plan on building a 4 seater using a 1000cc GSXR motor for trail running etc. Does anyone have a cage design or pic of a 4seater that isn't as long and bulky as a bus?

    Howdy and welcome to MBN.

    Nope!
    I don't think such a beast exists.
    But, there's no reason you can't take two seater plans and stretch them out.

    It's pretty much what most of the four seat UTVs are.

    Something like a Rorty or Edge car would be fairly easy to extend.

    Might even hit up Jody (not Jodi - he hates that ) over at Protodie and see if it's something he could supply.

    Didn't JGSFab just sell his 4 seater?

    May want to hit him up. He may be inclined to sell his plans. His buggy was bad ass but I think it was a Zx14.
    I know for sure it was more then a 1000cc

    Tough to build a four seater thats not long unless the passengers are on the small side and still like to ride cramped up.

    Also curious as to why you are choosing a 1000cc bike engine for a heavyish trail cruiser? A lot better options exist that would likely make it easier and more fun to drive.
    Now that NOBAMA has PROVEN he is the absolute WORST president in the history of history Jimmy Carter can thank him for stealing the dunce crown.

    Lets hope the next guy repeals NObama care along with the rest of the stupid crap this blight on our windshield has done.

    Thanks everyone, Like everyone else I'm hoping to keep the design as small and light as possible for a 4 seater. Nuts4sand the reason for the GSXR is I have one. I'm not set on the motor size yet what would you suggest for options? I'll search out JGS fabs buggy. Protodie will probably be getting a parts order from me in the future, cool stuff.

    welcome. I think it would be cool to see a mini 4 seater. probably wouldn't be a mini anymore though with the extra 2 seats in the back. still cool to see what you come up with.

    Everyone is scared to ride with me. I'd have 3 empty seats all the time.
    All you got to do is remember 2 thing, Mentum and Mo-Mentum.

    Polaris RZR are cool,but to me their still to long.Why hasn't anyone put the motor in the front of their chassis? Looking at the 4 seater market, there is all that chassis length at the front that has nothing there really. Then you have the added length at the rear that is used for the drivetrain. Why couldn't a power plant be put in the front of the buggy like a car? Has anyone attempted this?

    No reason at all it cant be done. However, if you're driving without passengers i feel that your car eill be front heavy. You want some weight over the rear wheels where the drive is. Also might want to use a few short drive shafts rather than one long one so it doesn't whip around too much. As a thought, have you considered a fwd car engine and gearbox but set up as a rear engined, rwd unit? You can get some good car engines pretty cheap, and gives you the added bonus of reverse gear. Pushing back a 4 seat beast on a rough trail will be hard work if things go wrong
