    Hey guys, I'm hopefully moving into a new house at the end of april, and it has a nice big garage.
    I want to start a smaller style build project, I was thinking one of those 125cc shifter kart thing would be a blast and not too hard to make.
    I was also thinking of finding a sport bike that has been crashed, and doing some rebuilding on it.
    I'll always have the truck, but I want something smaller and cheaper.
    what do you guys think of the shifter cart thing?

    what have you or do you guys do as hobby projects?

    that would be cool, I was thinking a 125cc 2 stroke dirtbike motor cause their nice and small. I would love to drift around in parking lots on one of those things.

    Nah...you gotta get a 500-600cc in there! Cage it, strap on a helmet, then go blow the doors off of some of you local Vettes!

    well, I just got accepted into a new house to rent and it has a nice big garage!!!!!!

    My father passed on a 1989 fox body 5L ford mustang that he did a lot of work too, I think I'm going to re-do the interior for my project. I'll do a build thread when the time comes

    Do the shifter cart but with the motor from a GSXR1000 in it. Search on youtube for the videos of them, there are several. One guy is even driving around Miami at night in one with a motor from a Yamaha R1. Talk about fast. I'll try to find the link.
