i am thinking about taking apart my current racing mower 'the devil child' and taking the axle, gearbox, and build up a 14hp v twin and put all of this stuff onto a parts wide boddy murray. some pictures of my racing mower are somewere on here, its a blue dynamark hood on a huffy frame. do you think i should either 1. build the Vtwin up with some goodies and put that in the huffy frame, and improve the appearance and everything on it 2. take all the stuff of of it and build up the murray wide body and then if i do that ill turn the huffy into a mini jacked up off roader, ill put 20's all around it and i will give it alot of flex. so tell me what you think and let me know what i should do

to build or not to build? Sspx0111

theres a pic of my racing mower now, but i have a 3rd idea, the murray now has a rearend with the one shaft bent and has no motor, i have a small honda 5hp vertical shaft motor. i was thinking of just improving my racing mower and making it cooler and then building a demo derby mower out of they murray

looks like its set up to race from how its lowered. it looks like you could probably make it go pretty fast cause it looks light and you could probably put a vtwin or opposed twin on that sucker or maybe even a motorcycle engine on that. either engine would be cool.

it is lowered and it is set up for racing and does 40+, my question was if i should take that one apart and build a murray wide body with the parts, and im getting a 14hp vtwin that im might be putting in it if i dont tear it apart

If you had the parts, I would just build another tractor. If the blue one still runs, let it go and build another one to romp around with.

Thats just my 2 cents.
