The look of the black and matching tires looks awesome. Very nice.

Put new grips on it since then.  Now it's got lime green and black Pro-Taper Pillow Lites.  I'm looking for good hand guards that aren't silly looking and plastic. LOL Love the bike so far, The only thing I don't like is the absence of a kick start.  I suck at bump starting bikes  .  If I could find a kick start kit I'd love it! LOL

On another note. Sorry for jacking you thread.  Razz

I like it, did you just stick tape over the craftsman sticker to save it?

ok next mod, brakes....for this i am taking the drum brakes off of a chinese quad and adapting them for my tractor. this will give me brakes, something ive never had on this tractor (not the best idea). anyways i need to buy some bearings and then they should go on without to much fab work. Also the craftsman stickers were taped off, it helps break up the black.

ok got the front drums mostly mounted up. i am waiting on some new bearings, but after that all i have to do is to secure the drums so they dont spin....this should give the tractor plenty of stopping power


all i had to do is drill out one part of the drum and they just slide right on. i was also able to use the stock c clips

the stock atv cables were big enough....added bonus....another cool thing is that the stock atv brake lever bolts right on to the deck adjustment lever.looks pretty cool and isnt awkward to use

went for the first real drive in the woods with this thing since the 4 link and brakes have been completed.....it drives sweet. It doesnt get stuck anywhere and it is convenient to not barrel down hills and crash at the bottom...thanks to the drums of course. got some pics too

flexation! the all tires are on the ground when i am sitting on the tractor...once i get off, one of the rears leaves the ground

driving through the firns and such....

To cool! How well do the breakes work? Im working on cables for my racer, but the one that comes off the brake cable splitter isnt long enough to run it to a handle like you did, but oh well. Maybe you can write up a thread about the brakes with more pictures, im sure it would be a great mod for other people.

thanks red.....they worked pretty good for the first test drive.... not quite a neck braking stop but its better than stock mower brakes in my opinion. i think once i tighten up the adjustments that are on the drums themselves i will have them pretty close to done. these came off of a 110cc mini quad so im not expecting them to be able to lock up the front wheels... once i get them working to where i want them to be i will make up a thread just for them...

Nice tractor! Love the brake mod. Could you get some more photos around the tractor please? It looks great with the black paint and wheels, also looks good with the decals still on.

home made muffler, sounds pretty good, nice deep sound. I lost the video of it running and will have it up soon, if you have any questions just ask. i am going to grind it smooth and paint it when i get the time.

managed to break a shock..... somehow
finished the exhaust as well

painted the muffler up

i also built a "tip" to finish up the exhaust...the exhaust does flow through both pipes via holes between both tips. there is only ONE pipe coming out of the muffler....thought i would clarify this, also the hanger for the exhaust hasnt been made, hence why it is sagging a bit

done, i hope. this is the 4th time i have redone the exhaust system on this thing. (atv muffler, redone for 4 link, straight piped, fully custom) tell me what you think. i can do a write up on how i made the muffler

Exhaust looks amazing! And with the shock, it probably has to do with a side to side load, those bushings dont look to forgiving. If you havnt already, be careful welding that shock, id personally buy a new shock.

sorry for the poor quality but this is what ive got for footage as of now. it has a nice deep sound and rumbles a little.
ps, my return spring broke off in middle of the video, hence why it sort of surges at one point in the video. tell me what you think, like it? does need anything Smile
