North Van Off Road R4

Here’s a very cool build we have for a new custom from the coast. This NXT-R4 is going to serve double duty as a very cool camping cruiser and also a golf machine.

Check out the one off front bush bar/tray system we have underway!

Our customer wanted a front carrying tray as well. So we are incorporating the design into the bush bar, here we are using cardboard to get the look we are after

Next we installed it on the tubes and installed the custom tray bottom ready to be welded out and sent to powder coat. The holes not only give it a great look but they also are functional for tie points!
