Current build, I still need to make a front grill, add better electrics and a tethered kill switch.  Other than that I will only add what else seems cool that isn't necessary to drive it safely.  The engine is a opposed twin 18.5HP.  The one in the build video is a 11 horse briggs, it worked fine but knowing me I wanted even more power!
The mower tops out at about 45,  single speed 90 degree gear box with no reverse.  Steering is pretty much stock, just flipped and welded on top of the frame instead of underneath.  Any questions just ask!

Thats something i forgot to put up about it, I need to get a nice gas tank for it yet, the original wont work because I lowered the hood as well so the dash and everything had to go, and the tanks was in the dash. Im thinking up front ill put a small one, but more than likely on under the seat no matter how much i hate the idea of doing that.

Looks cool lowered down. I just took one of those apart for parts. Is that a Studebaker or rambler in the background?

That it does, I see where your getting the idea of it possibly being a Studebaker because it kind of looks like it in the video, but it is a 59 Catalina Pontiac.
