I had a Honda Pilot growing up, was lots of fun, still wish my dad had hung on to it... it was real similar to the odyssey but had a little bit better suspension.
Well I tried but I can't run no more
Tell Katie it's her that I adore
And as long as I love her best
I'm that much further west

Hey Dock, looky here. A complete Fiser front end offset with spindles. It happened to be on eBay for $95. All this costs about $350 off the shelf. Looks like we're mounting this beast on the right side.

I didn't like how tight the motor was to the driver, so I moved it back. It remains to be seen if I'll have enough room to kick start it. But I think the angle of the kickstart lever will clear the rear wheel enough to kick it over.  Otherwise, I'll convert it to electric start...

I wonder if you can find a rear end where you could run the motor sideways and chain drive to driveshaft.

Golf cart: remove right angle gear.

I thought about that.  They're out there. A bunch of quads and also golf carts.  The catch is gearing.

Those golf cart rear ends are pretty hefty compared to the rest of that cart though, no?

I would think so.  I'd wager as heavy or heavier than the rest of the cart minus the motor.   Most have an input shaft parallel to the axles, too.   What deterred me from quads (or 3 wheelers) is wanting straight axle and a 41" width.

Ez go had some the were perpendicular to the axle, i have one in my shed.

Maybe something off a little quad.
Cousin had an old 50cc shaft drive suzuki quad, so maybe kids models are more likely to have a shaft drive.
Down side with that is you gotta line the motor up with the input shaft more or less. Most of those applications will be pretty near center.

Sorry i it's hard to see there, but thats the set up on my Chinese shit buggy.

Hondalike scooter engine and cvt turns the foward/reverse selector, which links to the axle via chain drive.

Maybe you could run a jackshaft as last resort.
