Hey there guys!

My name's Robert. I'm not exactly new here, but I figured it was about time to post an introduction. I live in Central Florida. Belleview to be exact. I regularly go out to Ocklawaha and Weirsdale to ride my tractor. There's not that many trails in my neighborhood that I can ride on. And the few that I can get onto I'm sure will piss off the neighbors, so I just drive out to my friend's houses and take a day or two on the weekends to ride around.

I use my Nissan 720 to transport my mower. Here soon I'll be cleaning up the trailer and getting lights on it so I won't have to lift my mower into my bed every time I want to leave. My Nissan is a whole nother project that I'm not getting into details here. But basically it's my daily driver that I have eventual power plans for, the forced induction type...

I've also got a Harley I might be building here soon with my Dad. That should be loads of fun. It's a hardtail frame with a '78 Knucklehead.

If anyone is around me, hit me up. I'd love to have a couple days, or more, out of each month to go ride and build mowers. Especially since I can walk outside without sweating within 30 seconds because of this cooler weather. Lol.

Another Central Floridian! We'll have to get together and romp some time after I get my Ford going, what type of mower do us have?

I've got a ~'94 Craftsman LT4000. All stock, except a pulley swap. But that's about to change...

It's decent. I'd prefer something older. Like an old Bolens or something like it. I've got a 14 horsepower Kohler on my mower. It's getting swapped out soon. The magnet for the alternator disintegrated and the coil is going bad; it won't produce spark once it gets warmed up. :'(

There's some crack head on CL trying to sell a 23 horsepower V-Twin for like $400. It's not even in running shape... I'm hoping to get my friend's tractor with an Opposed for $200. Still cuts grass and everything.

Thanks, Doc! That fish doesn't look familiar to you at all? Maybe a certain Social Networking could jog your memory... Wink
