I originally planned on building one from scratch so ordered a set of sidewinder plus plans from Edge Buggies but it stalled simply due to the fckn horrendous price to do it,then this popped up on trade me for a fckn good price and it was loosely based on the original sidewinder.....rear swing arm set up is from the plans rest is just improving it and when finished will owe me about half what it would have cost to build from scratch
Will definitely log the whole build but as Iím a mildly retarded muppet !woohoo! I have my mate who is an engineer helping....he comes round at least one evening every week so progress will be consistent thumbsup
