anyone building a cushman truckster or a small toy

In wiscison there is a man who builds cushman trucksters with honda goldwing motors and 8.8 ford rearends. l am on his yahoo group and he has many pics of these builds. At last count l think he has 4.

the twisted and warped mind of mine is loose!!

SOOOOOOO, I found me a 1960 truckster for cheap and a free motor cycle from a friend that he robbed what he needed off it, the bike has a good 750cc V45 magna honda motor that l am installing in my cushman truckster.
in the back l am removing the fenders and running a 8 3/4 mopar rearend out of a 1970 1/2 ton truck. rear tires are 18.5'' wide X 33'' tall mickey thompson
3-grove street slicks. wheels are spun aluminum centerlines. wheelie bars l made out of a set of 60's ladder bars a guy gave me. hope to have on the road by summer. paint is a bright red corvette color, and my friend with the street legal sprint car gave me the small front wing so , l am going to put the wing on the rear by the tailgate, dragster style.

more pics in my album

later

I have 2 Daihatsu Trimobiles and a Westcoaster Mailster (also a 3 wheeler). I needed a place to set the drivetrain out of my 1.9L Escort and stuck it in the bed. Turns out it looks like the eng/trans would fit very nicely in the back of either vehicle. I need to cut the floor of the bed and lower it down on a subframe. Of course this will need wheelie bars. The Tri' has a 305cc one cylinder eng. that is too hard to find parts for. The Westcoaster has a 2 cyl Onan.

Small toy

I have been ignoring a project I started many years ago. It is a one-half scale model T roadster powered by a 3.5 hp Briggs, using a trans from a rear-engined riding mower

Started with a T body off one of those little kiddy ride-ems that stand in front of K-mart - put in a quarter and it bounces up & down for a couple of minutes

As it turns out, it is exactly one-half scale for a real T. A 3.5 hp Briggs vertical shaft EXACTLY fits under the hood with about a quarter inch to spare. Some day I'm actually gonna get that one done. Started on it when my kid was about 5 - he's 23 now. The baby T is still not ready to drive.
