They do seem spendy for what they are.

I have seen them cheaper but I forget where.

I'm pretty sure if you bought the Yokes it wouldn't be too hard to get bearings, machine a housing and weld up a mount...

Tentatively, gotta get my buddy to finish his motor swap in my garage, figure out why mine won't start, and borrow a trailer.

Buggy is still in the same position. However I did pick up a new trailer to transport it in...



Its a 8.5x18. It will fit. Buggy is 14' tip to tip. And the rear axle with the mtrs should fit between the wheel wells with about 1" to spare. And about 3"s to spare on the roof......I've always liked it tight
