Made myself a new bumper.

Recommended Posts

I was cut off on a trail last weekend by a guy on an RM250, I tried to get out of the way, but in his panic, he crossed his bike right in front of me and I nailed him good. I ended up with a few scrapes on my left elbow and left rear hip area, a totaled bumper, a punctured tire and my allignment was knocke out of whack. He had a collapsed expansion chamber a sore pelvis, and a puncture wound to hid "unit". I straightened my allignment, plugged the hole in my tire and built me a new bumper out of some metal that I had laying around the shop. I started with a coulple of curved pieces that I welded together, and ended up with what you see on the quad. Here are a few pics of my creation.

That looks prety sweet dude, nice job! I can't tell you how many times I've tried to straighten or fix a bent or broken front bumper, and been so close yet have it go all to shit.

Thanks, I figure it didn't turn out too bad for just slapping a couple pieces of metal together that were laying aroung the shop. I could have done a better job on the finnish work, but I really just wanted to get something on there that will serve its purpose for now.

      For those in the Northeast, this weekend is going to be a hot one. This upcoming weekend is the Snow Shoe Rails to Trails Chicken BBQ event which we attend every year. Last year for our Jumping Jack, I made a "Redneck Air conditioner" but I found sticking the hose in the door way got in the way. This year I improved upon it and found a way to have the cold air blow into the front window without cutting or sewing the marine canvas. I didn't want to compromise the canvas in any way so I came up with a way to hold it in place with magnets. Made strips of magnets with duct tape and used clear vinyl to cover the window and attach the duct coming from the air conditioner.  I did replace the hose with one that is a bit longer, found it on Ebay since you can't buy vinyl dryer duct hose anymore.
      We are ready for the hot weekend of riding and camping, and the hose won't get in our way anymore.

      Hello all just recently acquired this atv which as you can see in the pics that it has had an unsheltered life. i did get it running and put some used tires on the front.
      It still needs a bit more well needed maintenance, chains tightened and oiled. needs an airbox or air cleaner and other misc items.
