I am using a mtd frame, what I have all ready done to it is, gutted the hole thing and I had split the frame so that it slides back in the back part of the frame so that the motor ( an 8hp for now ) and in time that motor will be a 40 cude, the trans is one from a mtd with a variator so it only has for word and revers, I will be using a ragerlar lawn mower belt clutch. I will be welding a chopper bicycle to the front in turn turning it into a trike.I will be using a 8" pulley on the trans and a 3" on the motor. I will use the rageular brakes that are on the trans, um I will have update videos on my YouTube.com/trevorlc100 . then I am hoping to make this in school at our welding shop. I'm not going to put the variator back in I'm only gunna have for words and revers, I had the idea and its gust for having fun on. I might paint it military green and black and the name is Te Drill Sargent.

Your sign almost put me into a seizure- and I'm not even epileptic! LOL

Welcome to the build-off. I very strongly urge you to consider better brakes than factory- first, for your own safety, second- you'll have to demonstrate your brakes work to qualify as a finisher for voting.
