Default What could go wrong??

2002 Hammerhead 150 GT
2016 Polaris 850 4 wheeler
80's Honda Goldwing 1 liter boxster engine

What could go wrong?

I was pretty sure that I could find an independent rear suspension that would work, but the polaris lined up with frame weld points on the hammerhead almost as if it was designed to.

The drive shaft from the polaris will go to a transfer case, and the boxster engine will sit on top of the frame, and a shaft from th engine spline to the transfer case, and it should be good to go.


The engine was 78hp new, but I'm sure that nearly 30 years later I'll be lucky if it has 70hp.

So new roll cage is coming, 2" spacers in the rear, and a bit wider stance up front, itll take a few months, especially if I have to have a driveshaft made, but I think it's going to be a great first go kart build

Haven't figured out how to put up pics, but they are coming.

That sounds like a terrible idea.
I wanna watch.
