My latest little project, 1980 Murray gt 16hp.
Running a peerless 2348.
Just got my new tires mounted, running Carlisle 26x10x12 ATV tires out back and Chinese quad tires on 8" rims up front. Gotta do some trimming for proper fitment. They rub!

Nice stance! That rig would look pretty cool with custom diamond plate fenders too. Just sayin.’ Smile

AH.... nice rig. I'll always have a love hate for that model of Murray.
Love the 2300, frame torques a bit, changing belts are a headache. Still it was one of those that got me though Haspin a couple times!

Nice rig man! My friend has one like that, we modified the seat mount to make it a flip up to take advantage of that huge storage area under the seat. The only real weakness I've seen on the whole machine is the steering setup, other than that it's been a great offroader for him and he's not a small guy! We're working through the front tire clearance thing too, not a lot of room for bigger tires that's for sure!
