Well with the little girls B Day around the corner it was time to build her a set of wheels, I found this junk China Four Wheeler on the side of the road for $30 and figured I can do something with that :woot: It had been setting behind a barn for a few years with the story of it was running fine and then just stopped. :(




So out with the old :woot:



and in with the new :rock:




time for some collar :thumb:



and we got to have some glitter on there :woot:






the old straps rotted off so I just welded up some flat stock :thumb:



Added a Go Kart torque converter and new chunk of chain,:rock: the exhaust was a bit of a bitch given I reused old scrap :thumb:




and there she setts weighting for the big Unveiling :thumb:








She LOVED IT She ran it till her thumb was numb !!!

Nice!! We are discussing right now what do get my 2 year old boy and 3.5 year old daughter, the electric stuff is petty pricey, would rather do something like this for sure.

I can't tell you how often I see free electric ones on the side of the road or on the marketplace with "dead battery and no charger". I drag them home and put in a 12V lawn tractor battery and just use a typical 12V charger. They run forever with those batteries. Eventually the boys kill the electronics and we just grab another one.

We'll get a gas one eventually, but for now the boys get into enough trouble with the electric ones

Hmmmm... I am a little ways away from my son being old enough to ride one. Maybe I should start looking now for one like you mentioned.

Wow that did not take long, I just stumbled on this old thread and thought I would update it, late last fall we ordered up a couple cheep China quads for the kids. I am in to them for around 1600 bucks to my door and that was better than 6000 for name brand quads, the kids love them and are getting a ton of seat time the best part is they have a reverse which not all of them do. Now they are not the best in the mud but the kids still give it hell.
