Gator saga

Recommended Posts

Got a great running but trashed frame gator for a song so a bit of a flip project

It had a beam punched through the dash and suspended on the dump bed to hold it together 

that is just a rubber mat above the melted frame

So I ordered a frame on eBay with less rust but it still needed a cleaning, por15, and some floorboards that I made up from some 1/8 plate

When I saw the original design they wanted to box in the beam. I said no and upsize it to handle another ton above their calculated load

Just the thought of what I could do with a shop of that size, mind bogouling (gotta learn how to spell )

Very nice fab, really glad to see stuff saved versus junking

Oh and my wife would surely have issues with cleaning lady

Current trikes are a 86 250r, 84 big red, 84 70. I prefer over the quads but the quads have their pluses and better for visitors

Yep I prefer them to I used to have an R now I have a big red just sold two Yamaha 225’s on Craigslist. But my favorite was the 350x I shoulda kept that one but I don’t miss the R I’m to old for to take that kind of punishment (is that Courtney Love)

I got the smaller BR

reverse and light enough that I can drag it out of anything without a winch. My go to woods machine. The R is fun, i am on the lookout for a nice 200x. A 350 would do but I don’t need that much power

The 200x was the first one I ever owned imo there to small for a grown up but to each his own I should have kept them all they r climbing in price especially the reds and x’s
