Has anyone had any success with building their own three wheeled rigs, kinda like the ones from Artic Carts? I'm doing this for my high school senior project and have a few ideas on what to use. So far I'm going to use 1 1/2 inch tubular steel, and I'm thinking dirt bike tires to handle rougher terrain and be taller so I'm not stooping so low.
Any ideas and help would be greatly appreciated

I know my Uncle has had success for it. He builds rigs and scooters. I know for a fact he uses bikes for the frame part and then bike tires too, but I am not sure on to what type.

Thanks Old Geezer. I'll look into old garden tractor wheels

No but I had great success building a four wheel rig. Made from tubular steel. The front end was off an old but quality garden tractor. It had a seat for one passenger, Bearing wheels- NOT bushing. Brakes worked great. Handled a six dog team nicely. Ran ten occasionally. I scratched out a blueprint, handed the material to a welder friend of mine. A week later I had a cart. It had no suspension but the tubular steel and particularly the front end offered a smooth ride. I used that cart for fifteen years and easily put on a thousand miles per year. I passed it on to a another musher when I sold out my kennel. Great cart!!!
