    It's shiny, it's fun, it has a 401cc Kawasaki single. Sturdy rear rack for coolers and camping gear, hitch receiver on tube bumper for a small trailer.

    for some reason I was thinking when you said Kawasaki single you had done a custom motor. Like my daughter says "must have been a blond moment"

    I want an electric for the hunting club sooo bad but I'm afraid all the hills are too much for battery power!

    I can't find a current picture of mine since I had the seats done in matching blue. It looks much better now.

    Carbon fiber dash helps with weight reduction and increases top speed. :D
    But, I guess it's more than offset by the stereo system since there's an amp tucked up under the back seat. :lol3

    I was going to go with a lift and bigger tires, but I'm limited to turf or street tires, so left it as is.

    Your cart looks good to me, street tires and no lift are great if you don't need the extra clearance for off-road. My '05 spends most of the time on dirt roads, dirt trails, pasture, or light woods. 22" tires and 3" lift provide the minimum clearance needed for my use. The gasser has more street worthy 18" tires, it sees short stretches of hard-top, in addition to graded roads.

    The larger diameter and high-flotation of the 22's makes for a smoother ride off-road. The slower and rougher the going, the better the '05... smoother, faster, longer distance, the gasser.
