Beeeyootimoniuos work, my friend!
Love those fenders!
Man, yer making me want to get out there in the rain and get to work on my WHAMS! (In light of my recent debilitation, I decided to name the new project differently. White Hillbilly All-terrain Mobility Scooter. LOL)
I'm thinking of making a battery box on the front of that one. Full-size deep cycle battery should provide a bit of weight out there!
I have experienced what you mean when you say that sitting higher felt more dangerous. The old craftsman sits higher than the white does. And the white just plain feels a lot more safe on that steep trail.
