Talon X
Don't know how much build there will really be but wanted to document the mods as I go. I'm new to SXS's in general so it'll be a learning experience for sure. I'm not new to fab work or customization. Been in the collision industry for 40 years. Have a pretty well equipped home shop for tinkering.

I told the story in the intro thread but guess it's worth telling here as well. I have a restomod '85 FL350R that I just finished. I decided that I'd take it to a local off road show last week on 9/11/19. The promoters of the show have been selling raffle tickets for a '19 Polaris Ranger XP1000 all year. This was the final show. The raffle was a benefit for the Sheep Dog Impact Assistance group. A very worthy cause indeed so I figured I'd donate $20 for 5 tickets. I ended up winning the Ranger. lol...

The next day I paid the sales tax and promptly took it to my local Honda dealer and traded it in on a red X. my gosh I love the thing! The dealer had already installed color matched 14" Raceline Krank beadlocks and 32x10 Roxxzilla's. I also loved the wheel and tire combo. The dealer has a local shop build tail gates, extenders etc... for them and it also had one of their tail gates.

Current mod list:

Raceline Krank 14" wheels
Roxxzilla 32x10's
Custom tail gate
Hondaline center console bag
Simpson D3 5 point padded harnesses
Seat belt bypass
Seizmik Strike side mirrors with red inserts

Mud-Busters standard R fender extensions
Mud-Busters rear mud guards
Ebay firewall cover
American flag decals for the Honda emblems and 1000X decals
Front fascia and front bumper color match
Hondaline half windshield
CA shifter gate
Airain roll bar fire extinguisher quick mount
First Alert extinguisher
Bandit UTV tender springs
JC Racing nitrogen caps
HillBilly brake
SATV lower doors
Tusk seat heaters
LED halos, chase light, mini whips, chase bar, interior light by wagzledz
XTC keyed accessory harness
hondasxs.com 3rd brake light harness
PBR center dash switch panel
SATV Black Ops 5000lb. winch
Auxiliary battery on CAtech juice box battery tray
HMF HD front bumper with EXO bars
Nilight 4 row 4" LED pods on HMF bumper

As I picked it up...

The forum apparently doesn't like BB code so all the photos are thumb nails. Just click the pic for the full size pic.

One of my all time favorite pics. My FL350R and the new Talon...

I must admit that the wheel and tire combo really drew me to this X. I realize I'm in the major minority but I do not care for black wheels at all.

Figured I'd share a little more of my craziness. We built the shop when we bought the house 27 years ago. Been working on and in the shop ever since. Some days I just sit out there and listen to music to regain my sanity from actual work.

Outside and my slammed OBS dually...

East wall you can't see in the pic is where I keep my tool boxes, metal working stuff, mig, welding table, cold cut saw, belt grinder, HF bandsaw on a SWAG stand etc...

Speaking of the dually, here it is with my Haulmark 7x16 trailer. I converted the naked plywood blank canvas of trailer interior to more of a race trailer style. It was done for the FL350 but works well for the X as well.

The wheel and tire combo makes the X 68.5" wide. Trailer interior is 80" wide.

Would have never put the name with the person until I seen the golf cart in the shop. Welcome to the forum, this place is as good as BuggiesGoneWild forum man and you will fit right in. Knowing what I’ve seen you do to golf carts I can’t wait to see what you do with a Honda.

I want a Talon but have kids so have to do Pioneer right now. Here’s mine but I’m definitely watching your build.

Has anyone ever seen a electric drag golf cart that hooks up good enough to flip off the line?? This guy can tell you where one is

Thanks man. Appreciate it. I sold the drag cart but can't part with the EZGO build. I still love that thing.

First thing my wife said is that I can't do anything with the Talon before I get harnesses in it. Given my previous track record and all. lol...

6.50's @ 102 1/8th mile.

The EzGo is a masterpiece bud. That build thread is probably the longest one I’ve ever read. Still have my carts but I haven’t built one in a while. Just got my Honda about 6 months back and can’t quit working on it. Went to forum recently and read about your friend. Sorry to hear about Bob, he was an awesome fabricator.

Anyways these are good guys here and lots of info here. Get to modifying man ;)

Thanks again. 5 years later I still miss Bob every day. Like now when I think about how cool a cage would be if he were building it. I'll never part with the EZGO build just because there is so much of his fab work on that cart.

I'm liking your Pioneer very much. Looks great!
