I just found this site yesterday while looking for some parts/info on a Safety 1st Batmobile and I just got about 3/4's through my first mod/project.

While I wait for parts for the Batmobile and the Barbie Cruisn' Tunes Jeep, I turned my attention to a pair of Little Tikes Junior Quads. The first step was to convert one to 12v, which was quick, easy and effective. Next, I took the motor and gearbox out of the donor quad, cut away a bit of the backend of the "Mod-Quad" and I now have a 12v, 2 motor quad. All that's left is to bulletproof the wiring and fibreglass the rear end to compensate for the lost strength.

My 21 month old daughter loves the quad now, before it couldn't be driven in the grass, now it does quite fine.

Thanks for all the info and inspiration!

Welcome to the site Cliffo!


I'd love to se some pics, especially of the Little Tikes Quad. Don't see too many Little Tikes vehicles, but what I've seen are impressive.

Fast, Reliable, and Cheap... Pick any two.
