Well I'm sure some of you noticed I'm missing a rear fender on Danny's little Standard. Believe it or not there is a guy who reproduces these, his name is Daryel Shaffer, and he owns the Rare Garden Tractors website. I ordered a set from him yesterday! :bounce: He makes all kind of obsolete parts for these little Bantams, and is a real credit to this hobby. He's supplied me with many very hard to find parts for this restoration. I also ordered a correct set of ag bar tires for the rear, and a tri-rib for the front. :dancingbanana: More pics coming soon! :thumbs:

Got the new fenders yesterday from Daryel over at Rare Garden Tractors, and they look great! They are outstanding reproduction! I also prepped and painted them yesterday, and they are on the tractor. Here are some pics. :thumbs: :thumbs:

Thanks to all for the kind words. I got the new tires in today, and I should get them on tomorrow. I got two Deestone 400x8 AGs, and one Deestone 350x6 tri-rib, which should finish off its munchkin size big tractor look! :bigrofl:

Well, I got the tires mounted today, and they look great. I did nick the paint on the lip of the wheels in a couple spots, :mad2: but it should touch up just fine. :thumbs:

It looks great and ready to work. Were there any attachments to go with these. I see it has what looks like a trailer hitch point on it.

Yes, they had several attachments for them Brian. Let me see if I can paste some pictures I've seen. I don't have any attachments for this one.

Just thought I'd post a quick updated. Since the last update, I installed headlights, and tail lights on Danny's little Standard. He wanted to know why I had headlights on it as a kid, and he didn't. The headlights I installed only required a 5/16 hole be drilled to mount them, and the tail lights I mounted on already existing mounting tabs on the back of the tractor. Since the engine has a magneto ignition, the key switch only cranks the engine over, the kill switch is actually on the side of the engine. So I just wired the lights to the ignition switch, so no more holes to drill in the tractor, or extra switches.
I also ordered a correct seat pan for it from Daryel over at Rare Garden Tractors, its much smaller than what I had on it, and its a fantastic reproduction of the factory Bantam cast aluminum seat. Plus it fits Danny's rear much better than the seat I had on it, that was to big for even my rear end. :bigrofl: I posted before, and after pics of the seat. :thumbs:
