The R82s (Rorty 8 series, 2–seater) utilises automotive engineering grade materials – not just bits of black pipe and old quad and car parts!
The R82s is a design for those looking for all the thrills of a single-seater bike powered race buggy, but with the addition of a passenger/navigator’s seat, and yes it can be built right or left hand drive!
The suspension offers huge amounts of travel and the stable chassis design incorporates a longer wheel base and wider track than in previous models. This is the ideal pre-runner or play buggy for high speed trail chasing or dune running.
The manual and plans have been carefully produced to enable competent DIYers to construct a full-bore ultralite buggy for themselves by following highly detailed and easy to read drawings in conjunction with the construction kits available from Rorty.
More than just a collection of CAD drawings, this comprehensive manual puts bike-powered buggy racing within easy reach of every petrolhead!
The Manual and Plans come as a downloadable PDF package for you to print to any size you choose. By default the manual is US letter and the plans are US tabloid.
