    Well I guess ill start from the start so to speak. A while back i built a great little pusher out of a mini chopper that was given to me. The idea was to do the entire build at no cost. In the end i did spend about 10 bucks for some cosmetics. Lol. Wife said I blew the projected budget all to....
    Well I did end up with a great handling trailer but the china 50 cc just didnt have enough go on hills. Still i rode the thing into the ground and called it a prototype. At least till i killed it.

    time for the real stuff. 8 H.P. Full suspension (trailer too) eye popping monster pusher. should be a blast! Ill have my daughter post some pics today since im computer stupid. Lol stay tuned!

    Here's a picture of the used-up remains of my push trailer with the new engine sitting next to it. I must say it did take me quite a few miles.

    Now on the butcher's block, and having my cache of miscellaneous parts stacked together to see what fits where.

    Well after much mental engineering, butt scratching, and beer i settled on a frame design that should work well. Had to be a lot stronger than the last one, built without a pipe bender, and use stuff that I have on hand.

    started welding it together last night. The second build is fun when you have all the mistakes of the first behind you. Lets see what i can screw up this time! Lol
