I can see already this will be fun to follow, Keith. You're getting lots of good suggestions already.

That girl is going to have legs on her like pile drivers.
How are you going to shift? Is it going to have a de-railer like on a 10 speed bike?
I'll bet it won't be too long and it will have a diesel in it :smilewink:

:rofl2:
Yeah, don't forget the cup holder either.

Can't wait to see pics and plans. I think this will be cool.

If you don't have room for a full size derailer, how bout an old 3 speed system?
Also, how are you going to allow for backing up or the sneaker actuated "Jake brakes"?


No coast, it would be just like the original stuff.

thats pretty neat. I used to have a little narrow front ford pedal tractor when i was little. Had a little cart to pull behind it. I remember helping grandpa haul rocks for grandmas flower bed lol. He would load up the yard trailer for the lawn tractor and I would load up my little cart. Could barely make it up the hill with it lol. Good times...

If you two are close those will be times that you will hold dear for the rest of your life. I'll bet it makes him happy also.

Oh im certain it does. Most of the family wants him to retire and take life easy. I think im the only one who encourages him to keep on farming. He only farms a few acres any more, and he loves it. The way I figure it he should keep on doing what makes him happy while he is able to get around good still. He can relax and take it easy after that.

I like the little plow behind it. That thing is neat. I wonder if it will pull it?
