its just a kmx base model 20 inch rear wheel 7 speed,if i dont get my welder this year to make improvements i will probably sell it to get a bigger one

i have an 8mph disabled buggy to rob of motors and was thinking of gearing it up with bigger wheels and motors for fun....or just building one from scratch with 700c rear and 20 inch front :?:
