Hey guys, I thought I'd show you a little about my Murray "Hot Rod" street mower. It started as an early 90's Murray pro 18hp twin hydro. I don't have any pics of it stock. Just a little video. From there I redid the wiring, lifted it, and painted it black.
Then I chopped the bump under the driver seat (Murray Pro sits extra high) and lowered down the fenders. And I added pin striping and side bars.
Then I really started chopping. I lowered the front to about an inch of clearance (now I can't ride it because I live on a dirt driveway on a dirt road!) and I added tail lights and brake lights.
Then I swapped out the hydro trans for a 6 speed, put in a 15.5ohv engine, and now it sits waiting for brakes. I know that's not a very good explanation, but I'd be happy to give more details and post more pics (recent ones too) if anyone wants! Here's a vid I made asking for help with the shifter just after I put the new trans in.
(you can really see the white lettering I did on the wheels)
