new paint



new luggage rack  



and a trail/dunes flag



Just this fall i broke a belt so i have to cut all the strings that are wrapped around the pulleys and i have to make steering stops and fix the tie rod because it is held on with zip ties at the moment

we call this the pit we have a few more tractors we mess with and this is where we test them (it has claimed many belts 2 trans axles and one engine) its a tough pit but its fun. the water hole in the middle will sink a mower completely.
