LOL Laughing It's really good fun Very Happy
Battle Pony won the cosplay competition at UK Ponycon . In turn the con raised money for riding for the disabled. If you put mine half way between a darlec costume and a furry you're in the right place.
And like off-roading and robot wars, you couldn't find a nicer bunch of folk Cool

Anyhoo, you can be a bit of an extrovert and I think you would get a kick out of it if you tried it!

Also, Thankyou Miss GED, I'm glad you like it Very Happy

But it comes alive if you prance about in it Laughing
Otherwise it's just a thing Wink

Also, I'm guessing you don't want a link to the 30 second vid that I just made.....

Also, Thankyou Cool

Also, I'm not saying it would have been quicker to build a new trailer, but I cut a load more off yesterday and there isn't a lot left!

It sure is taking a while. Terry brought me two wheel and tyre tonight so it is getting there. I can remember how I just got on with building it when I was 20, but that was a lot of pulled muscles ago Laughing

Also he said the old wheel was nearly rotted through !
Just as well it's in for a major re-fit then Confused

Not necessarily... they are not on as normal - which tends to push the grip out to the sides of the tyres thus loosing it

Tyres on this way around pulls the grip into the centre of the tyre trapping it until the tyre rolls over it...

Nope, itís an old dumper truck trick. The fronts go on backward so you get best traction in reverse.

It was waaaay to heavy for handle bars before I put the crane on. It made a D-bat Polaris feel light weight. It is actually side-by-side sized as well. And because the engine is big the seat doesnít really work out. (Never did, thatís why they didnít sell)
To my surprise it can still be ridden from the seat Surprised
I figured it would be a reach too far, but because it is so easy to turn it works. Easiest is to sit on the carrier. For acurate reversing you can sit side-saddle.

Anyhoo, basic upshot is that the wrist breaking horror has been tamed Smile


Next mod is to fit a locking hub to the rear axel.
