Default Rat Rod

When I purchased this home, I got a '97 Club Car DS with it. I was told that it had several previous owners and was used with the home as a rental property before I bought the house. My next door neighbor had once owned it and told me that he think it had a high speed gear put in. It is a 48 volt series and does move along pretty nicely with new batteries. That said, I decided to change the old look a bit, since I bought my wife a newer model golf cart that looks nice enough for her to be seen in it.

Here's photos of before and after. Bear in mind that I haven't finished with it, but if I don't post something now, it may not look the same later. I have a habit of changing my Harleys pretty often, so no telling what this will look like later. I do plan to build a little truck bed on the back that will also allow two grandkids to ride in back. I have heavy duty springs on the back, with the lifting shackles. I have 22"x11"x 8" tires on the back and 3" wide trailer tires on the front. I rattle can painted the cart satin black, with orange pin striping. I upholstered the seats with some waterproof fabric that I picked up on Amazon. I don't know if you can see them but I have blue dot rear tailight lens. I was bumping my head on the overhead bars so I put some pipe insulation on them. I found some cheap chrome lug nuts on ebay that I put on the front wheels. Oh yeah, the front has a toyota or honda grill that I attached and two white led lights on the front bumper for night driving.

This is one very inexpensive job. But, I know that no one else has one like it within at least 20 miles.

Thanks. The colors were supposed to be Harley colors, not Halloween. But, sometimes you have to go with the flow....

I added a "woody" style combo truck bed/rear seat on the back. Since the grandkids only come about once or twice a year, I can use it to haul groceries most of the other time. When they come, I can throw a lawn chair cushion on the back and they are fine. What you don't see is that since the photos were taken, I put a bungee net across the back like you would have a cargo net tailgate. The next addition to it will be making a door for the bagwell so that I can store stuff or carry a battery charger on long rides. The rear bumper was kind of a hurried attempt using junk from my garage scrap pile. But, it gives the kids someplace to set their feet.
