I was thinking of building the cab from pt 2 x 4 's and using the clear plastic that Walmart sells by the yard and maybe a plywood roof. Like to see some of the ones you guys made other than welded pipe styles

I was thinking of fabbing up a 'cover' using 1" PVC piping and flanges. They have base flanges that can be screwed to the fenders or foot rests. They also got the fittings for the corners. PVC could be threaded or cemented. Plywood roof, 1/4 inch, made water resistive. One moveable door with a simple square type frame using a (or a couple) piano hinge(s). Was thinking about using that flexible HD clear plastic they use for marine seat covers, or 1/8 inch plexiglass. Control feed thru ports using sliced innertubes or canvas. Windshield would be the stickler, either 1/4 inch plexiglass or plastic sheeting. Glass might be too heavy for the PVC frame. Windshield wiper, maybe manual, not electric. Roof thick enough to support a couple white lights, front and rear.

Project put on back burner until I find some room in the garage to work on it. Which really means, a couple tractors have to be put out in the cold. NO WAY!

Thanks Danco

Here's an old plan for a wood cab from Popular Mechanics.
