    I am in the proces of building 2 buggies. Both will be powered by 125cc and 110cc semi auto pit bike motors 3 speed forward + reverse. I am not looking to build buggies that will go 100mph. Just some fun toys for me and my 10 year old son. At then end of this I need to get them both onto a 7 x 4 trailer.
    Here are some pictures. Both are using parts from a quad. Rims and tyres are 145/70-6. Frame is made from 25mm square tubing and 25mm / 20mm round tubing.
    This is my buggy. Still go a bit to go.


    This is my sons buggy with the quad motor that will be fitted to his.

    Cool project, I also have a quad for my daughters that I plan on converting to a small 2 seat buggy once my sandrail is done. Both of them have 90cc quads but I have a 3rd quad I was using for parts. Look forward to seeing how yours turns out. Good luck.

    We can't wait to get out and have some on the either. Got to do alot more work on the buggies. Waiting on a sprocket then I can place the rear axle. The shifter is going to use a corrolla manual gear shift cable. Need fabricate gear stick, brake and accelerator pedals. Some triangulation bracing to finnish, brackets and tabs. Then weld the whole frame and clean, then a coat of paint.
    Here are some pictures. The first 2 are the sons buggy, then 3 of my buggy, the last show them together. Enjoy.

    The buggies have been pulled apart for some further bracing and finish welding all the areas that were tacked together. Also started to build the rear ens with axle adjuster. Need to mount the brake caliper, all engine electrics with battery, complete the pedals and mounts, key the axles. That seems to be all that needs to be done with both buggies.
    The next 3 pictures are of the sons buggy.



    These pictures are of my buggy. Some of the front end mounts have changed to narrow the track to fit the buggy into a trailer. All fits now.
