    Big Red 500

    New member here and looking for infomation and/or help. Im wanting to build a big red with a 500 foreman engine and maybe swingarm/axle. I have a 86 big red to compare with but still looking for a junk bike. I have checked all over the web for anything like this but nobody has posted this, not counting the 300 motor. If anyone has ideas or thoughts i would love to hear from yall.

    So you by want to build this? But reversed. Iím sure the frame is going to take a lot of modifications to make it work.id love to make a big red out of one of those quads. I have a 95 foreman 400 and itís a tank, but I really wish it turned better!

    Hey Dave, that is awesome. I want to cut the bottom of each and swap, keeping motor mounts, foot pegs and drive shaft output. It will be alot of work as everyone tells, but i have alot of time.
    Im not computer great not sure how to add my other bikes.

    You are correct Dustrunner but if it was easy how would it be special? Im still looking for a junker, as i have many other projects now. If anyone in the Baton Rouge area knows of one please let me know.
