That would be nice to drag a deer out of the woods; esp if it was down in a hollow. ;)

That would fit the bill but I know you want shocks, 30mph speeds, a bigger seat for the Mrs., and some sparkly paint, and a big ol' Uuga horn! :lol:

I think I saw an old u-u-ga horn yesterday..Maybe I should pick it up... :roll:
I think he also wants "battery powered"..run silent,run deep...gas powered things are not allowed in a lot of places and on a lot of trails.I think he'll need to go to "midnight auto" and get him a prius engine... :evil:

Maybe a minibike kit that uses an auto battery(easy charging) and a better 12volt motor and gearing are what you need.Some of those put together go for over $1000 bucks.You should have the equipment to make one,just need a good plan.Those can be found on the net.
How about a rechargable lawnmower motor and battery?That should give you the power,torque,rpms,and battery... to gear down for hill climbing!The secret is the torque converter or centrifugal clutch to go with it.

Good winter project..since you don't waste time sewing.. ;)

I'm happy with the size and the power of this little "Rhino" scooter. Because it's 500 watts it's suppose to be licensed.............ain't going to happen. :o

Licensed for street use not trails. Ok for sidewalks, not to go over 7mph, that's the law :D
