    Looking way better. A lot cleaner than the original.

    Digging all the FAB work on your build! Not sure if you mentioned it but are you running a Tillett seat?

    Thank you kindly!

    Yes, I will be running the seat seen in the pictures. I'm not a fan of the GoQuad "boat" seats. This is another reason I was shooting for a simple bolt up of the seat. Four bolts and it's out of the way for convenience.

    I can not really express in words, the overwhelming joy this kart is to operate. Fired it up a couple days ago, got it on the ground yesterday with some rough mock up. Still need some parts and such, but it's temporarily road worthy at the moment.

    The traction is awesome and it doesn't want to spin out while cornering. It does start to "float" when it's wide open throttle, I'm assuming the dualies come in handy there?

    Some things will still change, but here she is........

    Upset Chemist gave me this manifold he made when I was out in AZ in 2014. "Here you go, you'll use it for something......."



    Eight bolts hold the .250" engine adapter plate, it's pretty damn solid. Planned to mill something out, but this just came right together.



    Sorry J, but I staked claim long ago.

    Holy crap Dave, Ive been quietly watching this and it has turned into the coolest quad build I have ever seen, the mount is perfection! This quad really got the love it needed and the bastard theme holds true. How long have you been using that air filter now? Haha.

    The whole "El Bastardo" started when Cable sketched it on the back of the seat. It always cracks me up so I left it. And yes this filter has been around, it's my good luck air filter.

    These seats are the only way to go, snug and secure. The recline is a huge help for a tall lanky Bastardo like me. The front bumper will also help me get my limbs out there a little farther.

    This thing is crazy fun, and I think my nephew will be looking to build one soon.

    Edit: That's my fuel cell, lightweight. I did say ROUGH mock up. Still toying with some tank mount options.

    Been meaning to post these up.

    I do plan to cushion and cover the seat. I wanted to mount a fancy alloy tank, but opted to keep it Goped. I struggled with tank location, wanting it next to the caliper. I couldn't decide which way to face the tank. So I took the easy way out and buried it behind the seat.

    Going to mess with the pipe mounting a little bit, then off to the bumpers.

    Also, laughing at the video of Revilo getting his twig and berries assulted by a rock, I'm toying with different skid plate options.













    Struggling to remember where in the world I got this gas cap. Meh, it will come to me.......

    Soooo, I made an attempt at upholstering the seat. The center started of good, then everything fell apart. It looks "nice", but the cornering was not what I imagined. It will need redone, perhaps with another material. I tell you what though, it is Cadillac comfortable for a GoQuad and will do the job this coming weekend.

    On the brighter side of things, I did finish the lubrication system on the rear end. I've had this thought for awhile and it works pretty good. In between the bearings inside the axle is a spacer, much like that in our wheels/hubs. In there snug, it limits the amount of grease and keeps it solely in the bearings and not directly on the axle.

    Drilled the holes at an angle to force the grease toward the bearings on each side, then mount the nuts square with the axle. Applying grease with a gun, after a few pumps it stared pushing grease out of the bearings. That axle spins some serious RPM's, lubrication is essential. Essentially









    I also got started on the rear bumper. I wanted to protect the pipe, but keep it light weight. It does need more bracing to keep it from tweaking the frame, but a good start.








    I'll narrow it up just a smidge, and angle the ends for aesthetics.
