What was your first GAS POWERED set of wheels?    (Score: 1, Normal) 03-24-2015 21:55

It has been with me since I was born in 1996. Climbed up oak trees half way, mowed down small pine trees, ran over a dog house (dog was not in it) went through several bushes numerous times, got rid of a snake once, cleared multiple lines of electric fence, smashed a number of toys and supplied the family with many doughnuts in my old sand box all while introducing me to RACING, DRIVING, and ENGINES!

It my 1996 Manco 415 "Fire Fox LXT" with a 5HP OHV Tecumseh OHH50 with "Power Sport" and racing flag graphic on the engine. Yeah, I knew I was the cool kid. It even has seat belts! And surprisingly really nice and comfortable vinyl seats.

Just recently I have gotten it back from my grandmothers since I have some time on my hands, that I should really be putting towards studying.

This thing needs some work. Brakes. New comet torque converter (or tune up) tires and a few others.

My plans for it consist of either Honda GL1000 engine and trans, Honda Rebel engine and trans, or Honda CX500 engine and trans. I want reverse so I'll have to add on a FWD or RVR trans axel since motorcycle engines don't have such gear...

Suspension would be nice, widen and lengthened frame would do my 5'11" stature good, some steering work and actual brakes would do it up right too. The for accessories like lights and marine grade radio, gauges, and mirrors. Hell make it street legal...

Crazy crazy crazy. $$$$





............it has a CVT

I've never owned a helmet in my life!

I suppose that's why dad never took of the roll cage. It was "good enough!" with the seat belts.

Good idea with the seat belts, just in case.
