I was hoping by our annual Dunes trip (end of may) but no idea if it will.
I hope to take my time and get it don't by end of July. Just depends on cash flow and what little things I run into.

Crappy pics but I didn't feel like taking everything off of it since I am not going to work on it today.

Cut off the rear end
Bent some tube

Damn coming along nicely. Question though, what is the point in using the rhino frame at all? Why not just build it straight from scratch? Hell why use anything from the Rhino at all?

I asked my self that same question

This is mine and zachs first real attempt at something like this.
There is a huge difference from starting from scratch and starting with a existing frame and modifying it.
I was going to make a frame, but oh well. The front half of the frame will probably stay about the same.
Plus I have Spindles, hubs, rims, rack, Steering, ect ect that I am still using. That stuff adds up super quick when building from scratch.
I have made a decent amount of cash already parting it out too. So between saving money and making money I come out a little ahead.



Plus its still considered a "rhino" road legal Title in hand

That should not roll if you stick with the pavement.

Yeah I figured you were going to use some stock parts. But what about he front. If I remember right, do you not have to have the CV in to keep the hub on? Are you just going to keep them in?
And also what are you doing for brakes?

As for the road legal thing, is it classified/insured as a farm vehicle? I know that's what you have to do up here.

Sorry about all the questions, this thing really got my interest lol.

I think the pic is on the 2nd page. I just had to take the axle out of the CV cup and leave the end.

I am using the stock front disc, calipers, master cylinder, brake pedal ect.
As for the rear I am running a Street Bike front disc on my rear carrier…. in fact I still need to find a street bike caliper.

In my county I send the DNR $30 and a copy of my title. They send me a sticker and a card stating it’s a off-road vehicle and I have paid my fees to drive it for 3 years on county roads. I can drive on any county road and cross Highways.

If I want to make it city and highway legal I would need to have it plated as a buggy. Then I have to have insurance on it, which I may do later if I want too.
