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.
