Smile Harley Davidson Golf cart canopy dimensions

Hi Everyone... brand new to this but I thought I would give it a try. I recently purchased a 1981 Harley Davidson golf cart and would like to have a canopy frame built as I am having difficulties finding one for it. Can anyone help me with the dimensions for the frame? Thank you!

I have a homemade on one of my carts. I can measure and take some pics but I won't be near the cart until this weekend. I will send those over with the dimensions at that time.

The trick with these carts is how do you design it so you can still easily open the body to work on the engine. Very important if you have an earlier model with the gas tank under the seat. Adding much weight to the body makes it a lot harder to lift it. One of mine has tractor seats rather than OE or boat seats and that one is borderline on being able to lift it with a single person. I would think a top would be even more extra weight.

Maybe with aluminum struts the weight is negligible? Anyone know what the OEM struts formed of?

Here you go. Notice that this roof is on my '85 Columbia but the rear body is exactly the same as yours as is the roof.

I actually scooped up this frame out of a dumpster at my camp so I didn't actually construct it. That said, it is simply made from 1/2 inch galvanized steel tubing you can get from Home Depot / Lowes. I have it fasted to the cart with 1/2 inch plumbing mounts. It looks legit.


I sewed the roof cover myself.

It definitely adds some weight but it's still manageable.
