yep it is a spider box front end with some BDX bracing plates welded on. My shift linkage is a little crazy because I wanted it to be pull back to shift up like a rally car. I got some steel spacers and some flat bar and made 2 linkage arms and attached them with some cheap heim joints. The axle was a difficult one. If you have a 250 you are probably fine, but I kept bending axles from the extra weight. So I had a solid axle custom made at a machine shop was around $150 for 1-1/4 wide 54" long 1045 carbon steel with threads on each end and a keyway all the way down. Keeping tension on the chain was the hardest part. I am using 2 chain tensioners.Nice! Is that a stock front end, with an additional brace plate?
Im interested in the engine install, especially the shifter linkage and how you got power from the engine/trans to the axle.
I've got this sweet-running Honda 250 Rebel engine, you see...
Yep I do I took it on a rip around the neighborhood today ill upload once it I get it from my buddies.Woah, you can only see the distant remains of the actual 3203 frame in there! Do you have any videos of it running/driving? It reminds me of the Honda Odyssee buggies from years ago.
Thanks! it sure does it can reach 40 up a super steep hill with no run up and that's only 2nd gear haha (6 speed). Yep definitely a lot of hours this is what I started with.Thanks for sharing that stuff! Looks like you had to get creative in the build. But it sounds like it rips!
The camera does not pick up the large rocks that are scattered in the road. My buddies truck with 35s can only do 5-10mph on that road for reference. Sure was a blast, ill be out sometime again within the month whenever there is another nice day!Nice to see a dirt road video. Be careful ripping out there ! Looks like a blast.
