Last year my grandfather got all of the proper modifications to make it street legal. Then, you've got an electric car, and at least in America, you tax deduction for owning an electric vehicle
I could of course buy something like this, but it would be much, much cheaper to get "TWAT" tattooed on my forehead in large gothic letters.

Hahaha omg this woman is hilarious! :D

:roll:

This I would actually do if it were feasible though, more expensive than I can justify though.

Two spraycans of flat black will fix the look.Itls usually these types of bargains you'd be looking for.
Just make sure the engine runs okay, without any rattling and stuff...make sure the structure is intact.


Look around the internet for spare parts for this particular model, such as the engine or parts like cilinder( heads), clutches, gears, swingarms and possibly even sprockets.
If you can get those for a reasonable price -secondhand preferably- it's worth the gamble.
In case something breaks down, you'll still have the car and you can get it running again for a reasonable price.
Check around quad forums ( fora?) for comments about the quality and weakpoints.


The seat can be redone easily, the bodywork is not important.
Lights are never a real problem.
Just go and ask for a testdrive first.
Rev it up, make it work if all feels okay, it seems like a good offer.

Just promiss me you'll turn this into a Mad max mofo!

Hahahhaha :D

Brian you beat me to the comments on that one.
I was going to email JSR with those same comments.
At least it is not Chinese like the others!

Brian, you pretty much said what I was thinking.

I'll see if I can check this one out. The plates are garaged but the owner assures me its road legal, we'll see.
Just promise me you'll turn this into a Mad max mofo!
I was just telling Duane, my idea would be to modify the bodywork to look less "futuristic", maybe with some sheet metal parts and paint it up in the scheme of an Afrika Korps bike :D
