Default Rebuild Progress

I just got my 1982 marathon a week ago. Already got it in the garage and stripped it down. Took off a broken front leaf spring and in the process of fixing the corroded battery cables.





My buddy gave me this cart for free since it was his grandpa's and he wasn't any good at taking care of it. I'm planning on making it a tribute cart to the grandpa
Lift kit on the way with bigger tires, new HD front leaf springs, paint, new cables, cooler in the back, some personal touches here and there.
What do you guys think?

I think you'd make any grandpa a happy man..., but don't go think'n he's going to forget the time you and your buddies tore through the garden on them dang 4 wheelers and squashed a bunch of watermellons!

So he's old, and he may be losing his sight, but his memories of all the stuff we did as kids is as sharp as if we did it yesterday!!

Oh, I'm sorry. That's what my grandpa woud say.....

That sure is a nice lift kit on your avitar there ez-gonewild. Her tires may be a bit over inflated.

Bet she's a lot of fun in the woods though!

Thanks! I like my tires oversized. They're good under pressure.

looks like fun. I think I have a similar Cart. Is that a three wheeler? if so, are you going to convert to a 4 wheeler?

It's a 4 wheeler. I started sanding the frame and getting some paint laid down. Not too bad for a rattle can?

OK, here's what I see. Anyone else notice?

Definitely 86 or older rear end and motor but the cart or at least the kick panel in the pictures was originally configured as a gasser or I'm totally not seeing the cut out for the charger receptacle. I see one for ignition, one for FNR, and one for choke.

Hey scottyb, "How do you choke a sparkie?"

Post S/N and Mfg. # and someone can confirm this.
