I picked up a wheel horse C105 pulling tractor rolling chassis on December 23rd 2017. It had a wheelie bar a front weight mount and 23-8.50-12 v treads and small front tires.


I decided to make it an off road rig and the tires it came with and the wheelie bar will be removed.

There are no plans set in stone yet.

Pretty sick start to a project! The little front tires have to go but I'd keep the rear v treads. They're pretty good off road unless they're worn down. I'd stuff a nice big motor in that horse.

Looks and sounds like they were doing tracor pulls with it. I don't know about a "big" engine per se, unless you are tinking about doing like redzz02 on his winning 2017 build-off tractor. A good predator would probably work in your case. Really GOOD bones to start with!

The front tires are definitely going. I will most likely do the 19.5-4-10 BMI karts tires that are deep lugged V treads on the front with 4 bolt hubs. The rear tires are going bye bye as well because 23s are way to small and it will get hung up on my rutted trials. It will have 26s or 27s on the rear.



And yes it was used for pulls the gentleman before me pulled it two seasons then put the engine on something else. I’m not stuffing a huge engine in probably going to do a 420 cc predator or a Honda.

Thanks rich. As for paint I’m not sure part of me wants to have it sandblasted and do a really nice paint job and part of me wants to clear coat it and leave rusty red. And yes the executioners are gonna look sexy
