A step-by-step illustrated guide to building a single-seater off-road buggy using standard tools, basic skills and low-cost materials. It demonstrates how to make the chassis, and advises how to modify and use cheap but serviceable mechanical components. There is information on how to source the power unit, transmission, suspension, steering, brakes and other parts, along with how to fit safety equipment such as padding, seat belts and engine cut-off. Written by the author of "Build Your Own Sports Car for as Little as u250", it follows a similar format and includes scaled working drawings, detailed descriptions and colour photographs.

Ron Champion is best-known as the inventor of the 'Locost' sports car, which now has an international following. As a former teacher of motor engineering at a public school he communicates ideas in an easy-going style, and his previous step-by-step book has inspired many people to build their own two-seaters. He lives at Blatherwycke, near Peterborough.

Gutes Buch, das Schritt für Schritt aufzeigt, wie ein altes Motorrad ausgeschlachtet und zu einem motorisierten Buggy zusammengebaut werden kann. Viele Details, kompletter Bauplan, Tips & Tricks, Do's & Don'ts. Gelungen!

Build an ATV for £100. You just need a £10k machine shop. 28. Mai 2005
Von Yuki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Okay, so you want to build an off road ATV for around £100 using parts from a donor motorcycle...sounds good in theory. So first off, let's buy the wheels : The cheapest place I could find quoted me £130 for four (they were only small ones too). So that's the budget exceeded already without a single hole being drilled or a tube being cut. I doubt you'd get a donor motorcycle for anything less that £100 that wasn't a useless pile of scrap. Then there's the steel tube- have you seen steel prices lately ? Add the cost of all of the other parts you'll need and you're looking at around £400. Then there's the tools. Oh boy...this is not taken into the account at all. For instance, how's this for the mother of all cop-outs : "If you have access to a metal working lathe, bore out the centers of the differential flanges, if you don't get a local engineering shop to do it for you." In the unlikely event of an engineering shop giving you the time of day, they are likely to want payment for this service too; it's "stealth costs" such as these are going to push up your budget to an unacceptable level.

As for the content of the book itself, the author tends to go into immense detail over no-brainer stuff (such as welding tubes together) while skipping over the more advanced parts (such as machining and putting together the rear axle) which most people are likely to have difficulty with.

As for me, in the end, I gave up and bought a used one off ebay for £370. It still runs great and I've never looked back.

Great for the beginner in go cart construction. After completing the first one I build a second one> however, it was way more the 100.00

It's a perfect book, and it will really show you how to build one. You will need to know how to weld though, and you will need somewhere to drive the buggy

Not really worth it. 18. September 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book isn't too bad overall, but don't go getting any silly ideas like you are going to be able to build this thing for anything like a hundred pounds (about a hundred and fifty US dollars), because it isn't going to happen. You need access to a lathe and a welder, as well as drills and other tools, which you are assumed to already own. The amount of money you would end up spending on it, you would be better off buying a second hand one, as I doubt you will learn much from this book that you didn't already know. So overall, I'm not sure if it's worth bothering with, especially when the author's other book : "Build you own sports car for as little as £250 and race it" is available. That's a much better choice in my opinion- it really teaches you a thing or two.

Sequel Madness 10. Januar 2003
Von JF - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
If you have ever gone to see the sequel of your favorite move only to be horribly disappointed, then you know how I felt after reading this book. It really is not in the same league as the author's previous excellent work. "Build Your Own Sports Car" is a classic and well written, but this book is really just a piece of fluff. The product you would get if you completed the project is merely a child's toy, and the instructions are poor. Skip it and buy the original book... you'll be happy you did.
