I started collecting and restoring garden tractor a long time ago. It got boring and I am in the process of selling off what I have left. Some of the extra parts I have left over cant be sold for what they are worth because craigslist in my area has turned into a giant PITA. So I am getting back into modding and building stuff from lt/gt parts.

1st one on the list is a '71 gilson gear tractor with a 16hp briggs. Still waiting on parts to get the engine running again. Mods include: 27" rear tires, 18" fronts, Grant mini steering wheel, hub caps, lowered headlights and raised rear fenders. I will probably leave the paint "as is".

2nd up is an old school slingshot front engine dragster with a full custom frame, briggs 19.5hp twin, 3x2 transaxle out of a craftsman II and an intermediate manual CVT from a shift on the go MTD. It will have the driver seated low behind the transaxle and a 6 foot wheelbase. It will launch with a gear ratio with a 15mph top end and the more you pull the handle back, the top end ratio will increase to a 60mph max.

I cant seem to be able to upload pics from this server (damn IT guys), but will add some later.

Looks like it worked. The extra axle is the start of the slingshot. Here are a few random pics of past projects
