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, nice looking little Jake. I hope my 1962 100A looks this good if I ever get it finished, have it all apart and rough cleaned. Just finished rebuilding the engine & starter-generator, long way to go. I'm luckey I have about 99% of the parts. Dave.

 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?

Dave,

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.
