Here is a picture of me many years ago at 14 , I had so many fun memories on this old clunker tractor/doodlebug. I built a snowblade for it, put fenders on it and even loved duel wheels all those years ago. This is my reason for loving garden tractors my whole life.

That's a great old picture! It reminds me of some of my Uncle's stuff from when I was very young myself! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks everyone , I remember the 8 hp engine quit one day and I borrowed $90.00 from my dad for a used 12 hp and I was so excited getting 4 more hp, ha,ha. I sold my bicycle and bought this for $40.00 and drove it 15 miles home out to the farm all alone . It was my first real ROADTRIP LOL
