Home-Built Badland Buggy
††††I bent, notched and welded the frame and swing arms and put solid aluminum bars at each corner before bending the pipe for added strength. I made cardboard templates for the sheet metal hood and diamond plate sides and bottom, then used a plasma cutter to cut around the templates. Some motorcycling harness was extended in order to operate the signals and tail light. I bought the head lights, steering, seat, gas tank, shocks and tires.
††††Finally the entire machine was spray painted blue and magnetic decals applied. Iíve entered my Badlands Buggy in parades and also in a car show, where I won first place. (Larry Klavemann, Wilton, Iowa)
