Vidars Barracuda build

Postby vidar » Sun Apr 17, 2016 5:52 pm

Hello, my name is Vidar and Im 21 years old and live in Sweden. Over the past few years I have wanted to build a buggy, and now is the time. I work as a CNC-operator and have access to machines and I will make the most of the parts by myself. I build the Barracuda at my parents garage because I do not have my own so I will only be able to build during the weekends, that means that this is more of an long time project. Hope you enjoy it! :mrgreen:

EDIT

Suspension & other:
I will drive the Barracuda most in the woods, on gravel roads and some sandbanks. Its possible that I will try to make a few jumps with it to :roll: Therefore, I dont want to spend to much on shock absorbers and so on.
Some tips on what suspension I could use that is similar to those that sell on The edge website (length and fitment)? Would they be to much or work well for this terrain?

Engine:
I've been thinking of using a sporttouring engine with 800-1000cc.
My first thought was to use an VFR800 but after some time on the internet and the forum, I'll probably use one of the bigger v twin engines. (example tl1000, vtr1000, rsv1000)
