We live in Pinehurst NC. A sleepy little golf community of 17,000 people or so. We have 19 golf courses within the city limits and another 19 in the surrounding 15 or so miles.
The citywide speed limit is 25 mph, with the exception of a couple of major thoroughfares that are 35 mph. Golf carts are allowed on all but the 35mph streets.
The country club is 2 miles from our house, as is the village center.
All of that to say this, it will mostly be for the weekend trip to the golf course or to head into the village and tip back a pint.
We do have a few hills, but nothing extreme.
We each have our own vehicle plus our Harley for date night or getaway weekends.
This little buggy wasn’t free, but it was only a few hundred bucks. The body’s straight with no broken pieces, the seat is in quite good shape, with only a couple of small punctures. It has been sitting outside for a while, so it is dusty / dirty and will be receiving a deep cleaning from me this weekend.
My thoughts were to get it up and running, as economically as possible, and then decide whether or not I want to put larger wheels and tires on it, bigger motor, better controller, lithium batteries, etc…
But as I commented previously, I just want to get it running, cleaned up and then decide what we’ll do next.
