Default My next Project

Well I have wanted a golf cart for a while to take camping.


So we have an 02 Club Car being deliver this week from a dealer.

Just wait until I get this ready for spring. It will not be the same!


Pic is not of the exact cart we have coming but close

That Honda brings back memories. I had a Honda 50 back in the 70's when I was about 13. I had lots of fun with that. Yours looks great. I can't imagine the 110 cc on that!!

I have TOOOOOOOOOO many of them and time to thin the heard.


I have alwas loved them. My father bought me a new 1969 for my birthday that year and I have been hooked ever since.


Actually sold that (yellow) one today for 4000 and that gives me money to build a few more and my cart project.

I have in progress

1 - 1978
2 - 1969
1 - 1970


and some day Greg and I will hook up and I will start a 1972 the first year of the softail.

oh yes a 110 is TOOOOOOOOOOOO much for a 45 year old man to ride. something about wheelies in 3rd gear dont set well any more

Maybe 70 motor on the next few.

That Honda is da bomb! I picked up a restored 1976 Vespa P-150 and have been considering taking it along on my next road trip. Made up a nice stow jig for the back of my TV along with a lightweight aluminum ramp.

Question ?? Do most places alow you to ride these in the parks as long as they have the proper liscense?

Default Just can't make everyone happy

Well I can probably see if it was that loud... My Vespa is nice and quiet so I don't think they can complain about that plus its street legal. Fire engine red with chrome bumpers all around. Four speed and maybe 50 mph if I'm lucky and by myself With the DW onboard its maybe 35.....
