Default Buggy DR600

Hi everyone

This is my entry for 2019, but I will not finish it this year, hopefully for next year...

The plan is to build two seater with 5 speed motorcycle engine, independent suspension..

Engine donor is Suzuki DR600 and for suspension parts I used seat Ibiza...

For frame, plan is to use 5/4 tubing..

Very interesting....
It'll probably be a beast when it's done(Probably want to upgrade to front discs IMHO).
Good luck on this multi year spanning build!

while still waiting for some parts , not much progress..

only disassemble one drum brake ..

I think , it would be easy to make upright and bolt spindle (drum) on it ..

Hi @karte_m0lim,
I like those long travel shocks and springs.

So the rear (Ibiza) will be on the front (buggy) and the front (Ibiza) will be on the rear (buggy). Yes?

I will be watching to see how you make the steering on the new front wheels, or will this be rear wheel steering ??

plan is to put original rear shocks again on rear and already bought small simple shocks on front ..

no rear wheel steering, normal steering .. will use stock steering assembly (steering wheel, steering column, H - joints and steering rack ) ..

car itself didn't had servo so it make things simpler ..

only problem is that rack is too long, 60 cm, and I am afraid that chassis on front will be too wide causing A-arms to be short as well as suspension travel ..
