    Hi all, after looking at almost every build on that forum for a while, i've started my own build. I've studied in mechanical engineering and i'm working as a project manager in an industrial manufacturing shop. Enought talking about me, heres the build as I plan it for now:

    - 670cc (20hp) Lifan v-twin engine & electric start
    - Double a-arm front suspension with 11' quad shocks
    - Rear swingarm with 13' quad shocks
    - Solid 1-1/4 live axle with pilow-block bearings
    - CVT transmission (comet tav-2 torque converter)
    - Two seats (side by side)

    I'm gonna use a lot ouf parts from an old buggy i bought as a donnor. I bought the engine almost new, the shocks and tansmission are new from Ebay. I weld with a Lincoln mig 140 and I have a homemade tube-bender I've build.

    See next post for begining:

    Ok. Well make a photo bucket account. (If that's what I use). So check this out.
    So upload the photos.
    Once they are on there. Click on the photo. See the direct link. Copy that.




    Then come to this site. So to post pics in the comments find this icon
    Click it and paste the direct link in it. This will make your photos appear like this.

    HI, where are you planning to ride in Quebec? Some quad club don't accept vehicule more than 55'' wide, they put concrete block in the enter of the trail and don't accept side by side vehicule.

    BTW, I'm french too

    These are pics from my second day. I've put the ''hood'' tubes on the nozing and made my first a-arm.

    I use Oilite bronze bushing 3/4od x 1/2id for tabs bushing, it's cheap and strong (thanks to McMaster-Carr). The spindles and hubs comes from the old buggy, so I make the arm's ends fit right to the spindle with a 1/2 shaft bolt.

    For the long pivot bolt on the buggy, I need something like 11" with partial thread end. So I bought a 12" long bolt, cut it and make new threads to it. I tried hanging myself to the tabs to test solidity and it easily past the test!

    PS: it's not the shocks i'll use..
