I finally got the second off the production line. I think the bigger tires make it. And yes it is very yellow.

I dont know what motor to put in it. A tav2 is essential. I got,

h50 tecumseh
5hp briggs
A built 5hp , that would need re-painted
3hp briggs
A lame predator motor

Anyway I thought the fork tube was a good idea. I welded a piece 1in OD 3/4in ID tubing to the frame, Then got 5/8 x 3/4 flanged bronze bushings, ran a 5/8 bolt through that was too long, cut it short and ran a cotter pin to hold it in. That way the 5/8 diameter is the whole way , so the forks turn easy with no slop, and cotter pins dont rattle loose.

Anyway fun stuff.
