  • New project (drivable ice chest..??..)

    I have a briggs motor in the shed that runs great and was trying to think of a fun project to use it on. I am wanting to make something that can be used in the pits when we go camping or riding. Something to hop on and run down to the showers, etc.

    I thought about a motorized ice chest like this one:

    What are some other ideas that would be fun to build? Any info would be appreciated.

        cruisincoolers.com, has a few models you can look at. No plans to build one though, I was actually thinking about making one of these pretty soon. I like the look of the one in your pic.

            those are cool, i chose to build a barstool racer personally. course i cant leave the cooler out so im building a small trailer to pull behind it that can haul my cooler or anything i could fit on the deck.





            not finished but is ride able. never mind the clear plastic bottle, that was my testing fuel tank. i built one out of some aluminum but wasn't happy with the way it came out so back to the drawing boards on that part.

            its a HOOT though, it wheelies AND i chase cars around the neighborhood doing 35mph.

              I have seen the barstool racers quit a bit. I am still thinking about what I want to do. It will probably be a while before I start on mine.
