I have this kids ATV I've been itching to make sth of and both my kids and my sister's kids are constantly bugging me about it... So I'm probly gonna build a buggy out of it the engine's a gonner so probly gonna buy one of those 150€ stationary motors with a horizontal shaft and throw a sprag clutch on that so it'll be automatic, no reverse but booohoo not gonna spend a fortune on this. I'm probly gonna split the atv frame in half, stretch and widen it and weld on a couple overhead rails for a rollcage. Now the part I'm struggling to figure out is the powertrain. For obvious reasons I'm gonna have to mount the engine on a tray over the rear suspension but since it's a swingarm suspension instead of independent I can't run the chain straight down. Is the best/only solution really a double chain with an intermediate double gear somewhere near the swingarm pivot point? Cus that'll be a helluva long chain and if there's a better option I'm keenly listening.

Edit: practically the only other option I can think of is to mount the engine ON the swingarm but not sure if that would cause issues with fuel delivery or other stuff...
scooters often have swingarm mounted engines

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

Scooters often don't go bouncy bounce on a field... But guess that would work as this will be no speed demon, the lot isnt that big and neither are the boys.

Three years ago I went on a dirt bike vacation at Taylor Park Resevoir in Colorado.

There was a random guy there on a cheap scooter making it work...
