Nice, maybe a beefier front bumper. Could we see the exhaust?

WOW, got some huge front tires! Do they catch on the foot rests?

I will post some pics of the pipe when i can , its a 1 3/4" fence pipe and runs from the engine down to the rear bumper with a few pieces of modified pipe to fit along the body . The tires don't hit the frame or the body but my exhaust is in the way and limits right turns slightly but it is manageable because the transaxle is locked so there is not tight turning anyway .The front and rear bumpers are getting replaced once i get some heavy square steel, might build a storage rack in the back for extra gas and tool box too.

Its been awhile since I posted anything about this machine so here is an update. I flipped it about a week ago and have been fixing the broken parts from that still , but have not bought a new gas tank yet cause it only leaks when I fill it over half and I am currently out of funds . Put the mud lites on the back with some home made 4 by 4 spindles and made some atv tires to fit on the front 4 by 4 hubs too. replaced an idler, clutch spring, clutch linkages with hiem joints so I don't flip it again due to a broken clutch , and added a rack on the rear. Also took the engine off and removed the governor mechanisms and cleaned out the crankcase to get rid of the oil/metal shavings sludge . Put on a walbro carb from a briggs 16 hp single and seems to have more power but needs some idle work .

I like the gas pedal. It's very simple and it even has a return spring.

I love how they run when they run, the first one i had lasted for years until the plastic timing gear shreaded .well the engine is running again , there was an object in the combustion chamber that wasn't supposed to be there , but its gone now and minimal damage was done . Its still alive and kickin thankfully. (i am working on getting an old 12.5hp briggs going for a backup engine , just in case)
