    This is a buggy that me and a mate from work built a couple of years back. Hadn't realised he'd put the vids on youtube. What does everyone think? Its got an engine and gearbox out of a GSX600F making about 70BHP. It feels silly fast!

          Its great fun! It feels so good going somewhere in something you've built. We've got no land to use it on at the mo so its just sat in my garage. We're going to mod it soon so its got a rear swinging arm.

              I'd guess at around 250-300kg. I can pick up the front end but not the rear. I've not tried it but i reckon on tarmac it'd eat the VXR for breakfast 0-60 wise.

                              ill have to try and dig the vids out there are some, how clear they are not sure as i think it was dark most times.
                              its in my mates yard at the moment not working the gear linkages stopped working, god it was hard to do them backwards!! so if we drive it now wack it in first and off we go still feels rapid and gets to around 40 id say!

                              so much bodging was put into that though, clutch, dials, petrol tank/pump etc etc where hard to do but its actually pretty reliable haha
