Cruising the G1 posts and wondering how you kept the roof stable?
When I got my '81 G1 I took the bag holders and basket out to put a bench seat in back and lost ALL stability for my roof.
I ended up bolting a piece of plywood on the back supports.

Hi, I own a harley cart, and just got a g1 early 80's . Have I'd exact year. It came with a 2 cylinder 2 stroke. I was told it was a artic cat snowmobile motor. I was then told I was crazy, that it wasnt. But it has what's left of a pull start on passenger side of cart. Any I'd help would be great. I do kind of have it running now, but needs new clutch and solenoid. Will be lifting it and adding custom paint and rear seat.

Picked this up a few months ago. Needs clutch work. I already bought some hubcaps and will be building an audio tube soon. I also wanna sand down the wood and stain/seal it up. An led light bar, brake lights and signals and that'll be all.

Thanks gray! I bought it from a buddy of mine. I always liked it. I just have a few things to fix and clean up and I'm done

Just acquired 79 ?? G1 5 days ago. Needs tons of work but cannot wait to make it happen this winter! Right now it was running and drove it around a bit and then stalled out and will not restart. Cranks fine, let the games begin!

Here's the before and after of my 79 G1. Had to modify just about everything to make it work, but once you're done, it's a really unique buggy. Keep us posted with photos as your project progresses. Remember to have fun!:thumbup:
