Gonna build one later. She wants it quiet. 😂

Got the body holes drilled. Had to snap a few before disassembling again.

All welded up and got the engine started for the first time finally...........

And the new shocks are installed which makes the front end complete finally !

And I cut the body to fit the switch panel to retain all the predator 420cc essentials........like electric start.

Got it all done this morning. Took it for a spin and did some wheelies !

Then the jackshaft bearings grenaded. Hopefully they were defects. I have also removed the governor as it was effecting throttle response really badly. So if I can find some bearings tomorrow it will be back up and running again.

I really like it, i've always wanted one of those. Like the key switch, if and only if u decide that the crotch area wasn't a good idea for that key box. I do make 80's style atc key switch pads. Not trying to sell u anything but the option is available for a top clamp style key switch.
Anyway keep up the good work.
pics just to show you, can/will delete this post, if not appropriate im really not a salesman/just my hobby.

Thanks ! But this model you sit away from it by quite a bit. Itís actually kind of a reach where itís at. If I build something else Iíll definitely remember you have those. They look really good.

And Iíve found out the bearings are junk. And somebody said the 3/4 style 1-3/8 bearing are junk also. And to switch over to 5/8 shaft.

I bought some tractor supply bearings earlier and Iíve rode it already. Just no wheelies til I buy these bearings I found. They are double the width so I think they will work really well.
