Default Custom Cart Build!!

Hey guys, brand new to the forum! Just found it a few days ago and decided I'd share what I'm doing and get some opinions and help.

I picked up this thing a few days ago from a guy who knew nothing about it. Apparently a previous tenant of his had left it over and he was trying to get rid of it so i picked it up for 200 bucks. The tank alone is worth 160, so not bad at all.

I believe it's an old Ez-Go, judging by the one body piece on it, the dash panel. It is HEAVILY modified. The rear looks like a heavy duty version of an ATV suspension with a car spring on it. The frame was extended and reinforced. I stripped off all seats, body parts, wiring, electronics from the previous engine, all down to the bare frame. Then i started to de-rust it. Used Naval Jelly and primed it today. Tomorrow I will be painting it flat Black with a Hammered Silver finish for the suspension parts.

I'm thinking about putting a 600cc Yamaha R6 engine in it, or really anything I can get that's over 500cc's.. what do you guys think is my best bet? It's already wired for a water cooled engine, as there was a radiator and hoses all ready there, along with 4 spark plug wires, so i'm guessing it was a pretty big engine.



when i first got it and stripped one seat..


continued stripping


engine area


a mess hahaa, and a custom GM tilt wheel. NICE!


rear suspension


de-rusted and primed for paint.



give me some input guys! opinions, ideas, anything! i'm a noob to this hahaha

Looks like you could build what ever you would like the sky's the limit and of course if the money tree don't die first . Keep us posted

I think you should narrow the front end by about 8 feet.

anything over 30hp will work
I say leave the front that wide - get it running first and see what happens. no reason to mess with the front if it is working.

yeah, i'm gonna leave the suspension alone until i can trial run it and see how it all works.. and as far as the engine goes, the 600cc R6 pulls 120 HP so i think that will work fine =P
