I need to finish this thing before may 31st so I can test it out at El MIrage dry lake. So the initial build will just gonna get some black paint for now. I can sandblast the paint off when I get back. Once I do finalize the build, I will powdercoat (color not chosen yet) and dress it up like a custom built motorcycle with as much chrome as I can get on it .. haha. Maybe pin striping ... :evil:

I got the axle all welded up last night. Only thing left is to make a fork and foot pegs.
The rear wheel bolt is set at an 8 degree camber.

It will have a lock washer on the inside and nylon lock nut on the outside. Some loctite thread locker would probably help also :smilegrin:

Come to think of it , cotter pin is not a bad idea :smilegrin: Can't wait to get the tires in so I can mount them. Looks like they won't be in until Tuesday , the earliest and I'm leaving wednesday or thursday. Cutting it close!!!

Saddle bags with chrome studs :smilegrin:

ok, it's my 4th day on this project .. almost done. Got the fork all tack up. It's about 12:40 am central time so it's time for me to go to sleep. I will weld it all up in the morning and get you guys final pics. Might need to extend the foot peg attachment back due to the larger wheels. Wish I got my tires so I can make sure it all fits wheel. I am just guessing tire height right now.

yes.. I need to clean up my garage :lol:

I finally got everything done on the buggy, including footpeg extenders and also a cross bracing for the rear.

I just got notified that my buddy Alex will not be able to make it to the El Mirage event along with Dino. Since both of them cancelled, we are planning to meet up later in the summer instead. I will not be testing this buggy at El Mirage so will be testing it on the hard packs on Galveston beach ( East Beach). This means I have more time now. No time crunch.

A few options that I will be working on since I have more time: fender , side plates , hot wire setup , and any other ideas you guys can come up with.

Here's a few more pics .. I will get final pics of it once there tires comes in on Tuesday. Looks like i will be powdercoating it if there are not changes after my test ride.

ptw ... its pretty much finish. Yeap .. the goal was a heavy straight line buggy. The rims and ftires are 75 lbs alone. With the buggy , it will be a total of 150 lbs. This is good for dry lake runs. Might be a tad heavy on the beach :smilegrin:

Van....I note you can raise or lower your rear axle...but you also have set a camber on it....that means you will NOT be able to rotate the axle at all, other wise you will end up with too much toe in or toe out....so the question I am asking is, why bother having an axle you have made to raise or lower when in reality you will not be able to use it?

Also why bother with camber at all anyway, camber is set to take some of the load forces off the hub, during tight speedy corners, your buggy is a straight liner, and the rims you have used will be more than capable of handling any forces a kite buggier can thow at it I would guess.
