i have gone over the LGT165 and do not think it is as far gone as as I thought at first. My wife says I should get it running and drive it before I go buying all kind of parts to finish it. You know she is usually right. I pasted pictures on the paost found lgt 165.Can't wait to hear it running,but that may be awhile.

I'm glad to hear it is not too bad off. Carb shouldn't be too hard to come by. What's up with the front wheels? Looks to have a bit too much toe-in! I think your wife has the right idea.

The PO had taken the tie rod off. I have put it back on so I can steer it off the trailer.
