Thanks for all the compliments. Still got alot to do before I can wheel it, bumpers, tow hooks, winch, inner fenders, hook up the arb, etc. But to fire it and drive it around is a big recharge.

The maiden voyage was the clubs Memorial weekend run to the UP. Still have a lot of things to finish up, a few bugs to work out, and some tuning to do on the motor. But over all I was happy with the first outing. We put over 400 mles on it and I never laid a wrench on it. The suspension worked like a dream, the ride height is 2" higher than I designed it for but it still drove exellent. I ran 10 miles down a wooped out atv trail in less than 15 minutes (could have been faster but the wife was getting nervous). Road manners are great, no bump steer, one hand on the wheel 70 mph down the road no problem. The biggest problem was the fuel milage, 5.5 mpg is hard on the range with a 23 gallon tank (the carb is real fat).

We even found some mud.

Been workin on this windshield frame design for a couple years now. Finally got the prototype finished and installed today.

All aluminum, moves the glass up and wipers to the bottom. I got tired of ripping the wipers off when riding on brushy trails.
