    I downsized from a full tube chassis rock crawler to a Can Am outlander 400HO ATV. I like the simplicity of laod and go, and there are more areas to ride in NY. Mostly mud bogged the crawler so I sold it. Now I miss the performance the crawler had. quick acceleration, suspension, and top end speed. Looking to hopefully utilize a Suzuki GS850 in a small chassis that will still handle the narrow quad trails.

    I have to admit I'm here looking for answers and help. I can fabricate very well but things like steering geometery and shock load adjustments, technical stuff ya know? Thanks for letting me join and I am looking forward to see all the build on here. It brings out the kid in me at 52.

    You have come to the right place. Heaps of build info throughout the site and a heap of big kids who love mini buggys.

    Have a dig through the information and if you have any questions just ask.
    All dressed up and waiting for the beer to arrive.

    Welcome aboard!! I echo JimmyG's statement about digging through the forums, but I would also recommend that you pick up a set of buggy plans. You may not use the actual plans as laid out, but they will give you dimensions and explain how the buggy is built. Badlands Buggy is a good place to start because they have plans for different styles and construction skillsets. Take a look and you'll get some ideas.

    Lots of guys have built minibuggys using motorcycle engines. If you have questions, ask away!!
