Ken, That is most likely what I will do. I have a small stick welder and an Oxy/act set. I am going to pick up a mig welder soon which will be better for this project. I can do the body work. If i come across a clean one i would still pick it up. I did plenty of hammering on this one to straighten it up.

Wade, noticed you have a pan seat on this. Is this standard for Jake 800? My 100A had a junk plastic seat on it with a pedistal mount,(see photo) is this aJake part, or something else?

Jac did not have a pan set.They a two piece set. Seat should be like this on the early jacs hope this helps.Josh

Josh is right. See picture in Josh's reply. I was going for a look not a original restow. The seat is off the shelf at tractor supply. The spring is off another GT mid 80's wheel horse I think. Just pulled it off the first one I found in the junk yard with the height I was looking for. I am a litle over 6' so I wanted to strech my legs. The base is a piece of 3/4 plywood that has since been pained red. I would'nt have any clue what that bracket you have came from. I am new to this.
