Default It's buggy time😁

Hello everyone, I've been out of the buggy scene for too long and I'm coming back strong. I've always loved dirtbikes buggy atv's etc. Been wrenchin on this stuff all my life and would be happy to help anyone if I can. I'm gonna be promoting some stuff I'm using to build some of the machines I'll post on here and my YouTube channel. I've been working on some cool stuff using the predator 420 motors. I've always been searching for the perfect buggy and have had everything from Mancos to Chinese stuff. Unfortunately no one ever made anything I wanted that was affordable so I'm doing it myself. I'll look forward to getting to know everyone and seeing what you guys are up to on hereDave

Welcome! 😁

So do you go off of plans or do you just design your own?

Thanks dude. Mainly I'm just adding on to frames, whatever I can find that has potential. I'm using the same motor mount plate with an electric reverse setup on everything I build In the near future tho. I do have one that I built for my kids a long time ago from scratch. Been changed three times and going on 4 soon lol. I'll dig up a couple pics of its transformation. I say from scratch but I chopped up a Manco dingo for frame parts and threw a quad front end on it

It's an 85 Honda Odyssey that's been 420'd�� I'm gonna load some videos tonight I'll put a link up when I do. So far that thing is awesome with the new motor

The yerf dogs are definitely good for the 420. I'm gonna be putting it on a tomberlin 150 and an older Chinese 250 cc buggy soon

Welcome to the forum. When you put some vids up, start a new thread in the Discussion section. You will get more interest there

This looks like it'll be interesting to follow.
What's the name of your Youtube channel?
