Some may know me, some may not. I'm Daniel and I go by Fatboy_Dan on youtube, facebook pages etc. I'm a 33 year veteran of the mower modding world. My first foray into the modding scene was at my uncle's vineyard, my cousins and I would 'speed up' tractors to go harass the workers while tending the crops and run, jump the ditch and get into the house before we got caught. After I moved out of area at the age of 11 I built a rear engine chain drive rider that was so fast it'd suck the tires off the rims at full speed... something I dare not repeat (50mph off a small embankment). Now days my machines are slower, with the exception of one.
My current builds are a 1984, 550 hour Roper GT-180 clone, 'chonda' 22hp v twin powered trail/utility machine with onboard carPC for on-the-fly control of my DJI Spark drone, music playing (playback with pioneer media headunit via bluetooth), and navigation purposes if I ever get lost while riding (not really possible). Also, working on a 1976 Dynamark/1983 Yamaha G1 hybrid, a 1973 Bolens HT-20, a 4x4 Craftsman LT4000, and a 1968 Craftsman Mini.

Welcome to the forum!! Sounds like you got some great builds going on!
Don't forget to make up a build thread or two so we can see the progress!
