Kids offroad buggies
« on: October 18, 2017, 08:36:29 pm »

Anyone have any experience with petrol powered buggies for kids/adults?
What to get a decent one and what cost?

Suzuki sierras are good buggers. The older FJ 50 two strokes make exceptional buggies.

I have one with a diesel gemini motor and auto trany in it as well as our stockman trayback.
Was looking for something a bit smaller and lower centre of gravity.

You could score a Ford Festiva cheap. 1.3 litre engine, Tear the body off, or just the roof. If this is still too big you might have to think about welding up a chassis to your own design and I know you wouldn't forget the roll bars and belts.
Or you could rip the cutting deck off a rider mower. Remember the rider mower race to the top of Cape York a few years ago???

Not sure any of that would comply with wife design and over the top safety rules.

There is a crown making $$$ by buying Daihatsu Terios' and cutting them down to tiny utes as farm run arounds. They look pretty good and go for about $7K. 4x4 and with bigger wheels and decent boots would be a capable off/all roader. They have a very short wheelbase and stuff all front and rear overhang.

Suzuki Sierras are cheap and easy to work on and get parts for. Early ones had a 1,000cc donk, later ones 1,300cc and a lot had the 1,600cc Vitara donk slotted straight in. My farm run around is mostly a Yammy quad but for heavy work I still have the Hi Lux 4x4 petrol that I've had since 1987!

Just bought a newer rebuilt motor for my suzuki stockman. The original has had 3 rebuilds and the head is eaten out badly so I had to bite the bullet for the heart transplant :(
Was planning on putting a kubota 3 cylinder diesel in it, but do not have the time to spare for now.
Still none the wiser about kids buggies.
Are honda odesies still made?

Put $1,500 on one of the argo's (green/gray one n no roof) and it went for $3,300 approx!
Bit of a bummer.
Back to the drawing board.

Did not get the argo so I will go for one of these grudge buggies.

Errr, the cheaper one that is.
If the motor shits itself I will put a 48 volt electric motor and batteries in it, maybe.

They have some good-looking gear.

Get the GTS 150 Jeep, that looks cute :)

Ha ha yeah I looked a few times at that, but the kart is a tad lower and more stable.
