You remove the body and add some left over plywood to the metal boxed frame.

Then you add a pedal, 2 12volt batteries, a harley harness with a boost switch on steering wheel and hang on. It is a proto but Its an awesome ride.

I weigh in at 200lbs and it had ZERO problems pulling me. I will post a video tomorrow. No gear box issues, no traction issues. 8mph by radar.

The kid trax steering actually allows it to stay just like that. I know its redneck and its primitive but the main test is of the gearboxes and the frame. Now Im gonna design a body for it since the gearboxes and the frame are doing so well.

So I didnt get a chance to make a video that was clear but I did manage to make use of a body that was laying around. Its getting closer to looking like something.

Its tacked together at the moment. Im going to pull it apart and sand and paint it when I get the fitment correct and the body supported correctly.
