Default First time diy Mini bike build

hey im new here. a friend of mine recently showed me his homemade dune buggy and it inspired me to get into some of that kind of stuff. I volunteer at a charity autoshop and know my way around basic mechanics so im not completely ignorant but im still inexpierenced. i settled on making a fat tire minibike and buying a frame then bolting on the engine, transmission, etc.

i found a frame that looks sturdy, cheap, and simple (no suspension needed) i have the link right here.

Iíve spent a little time looking around and this seems like the best bang for your buck frame around, the only problem is i need to find a fork for it but i dont think that will be too hard.

is there anything that minibike veterans would recommend for a new timer such as good brands, specs, etc, and just general advice?

Might not easily fit on vintage frames, but I would want the following two items for sure.


Predator 212cc Engine $98 plus tax
21919796 <-Coupon Code

TAV-2 Torque Converter Kit

For $150, you can have a nice powerplant and automatic transmission.

Check out MiniChoppersSoCal.com or 909minibikes.com for minibike kits available.
