    Is that a custom seat or repurposed from something else? Looks great.

    Thanks, Drone! It still needs a few more things. My next project is to add a brake on the car.

    I found this on eBay. It is a simple marine boat seat. The original Sputnik seat was worn out. With a boat seat, I don't need to worry about getting it wet.

    Thanks. I've been considering it. But it is pretty expensive... If anyone has a pair of used legs, I'd like to consider.

    That's what I did,bought a used set from a inmate for $250.
    But after running them I wouldn't hesitate to buy a " new" set,they work that good !!.

    Maiden voyage or I should say version 2.0 maiden voyage. 20170929_155918.jpg I had this Velorex on the KLR for a spell and was never really happy with the way it handled. So took it off for a while, finally got a chance to rebuild the subframe and beef up the car frame and suspension. Through a couple sand bags on and went for a test drive, it's greatly improved! A little painting and the tub will go back on.

    4 wheels move goods, 2 wheels move soul, and 3 wheels move goods and soul, maybe even a good soul.
