Is this for going fast or offroad? If its for being fast, stock stuff wont work - i found that out with my stock murray , why im cutting and hacking it up to handle more speed.

Its for putting around the farm. After the pulley swap it will go 10mph Tops witch is good for me. Neutral ..DAM i am giten old.. Neutral

Raised the stock seat by 4" both for comfort (i have bad knees) and easier weight transfer going up the vary steep hills.

Like a Star @ heaven...Honest i'll get a pic!... Like a Star @ heaven

Well is a rat any way Laughing
The top speed on it is 20mph +- which is more than fast enough of me.
Future plans is to lengthen the frame and have the seat over the motor even with the big tractor battery out front is still to light!
