Been doing some projects at my brothers workshop.  His son has been swapping out the handlebars on his scooter.  My brother, a friend and I were speculating how his scooter would make a good donor vehicle for a custom garden tractor.  We could repower several different units with that engine.  Even a bigger version of my brothers choremaster!!     Needless to say my nephew was not impressed at all!!!   Go figure!  Tim Allen would have loved it.

Nice looking scooter.  Are you sure that scooter has enough horse power to drop in a GT?  lol

I gotta side with your nephew. Don't pull something good apart to build something else. Take a bunch of junks apart to build a custom tractor. Good Luck, Rick

 

Wait were you just trying to be the crazy uncle that every family seems to have?

I wouldn't have been impressed as well.  That looks to be a nice Road King with a 96 engine.  Does it have Stage 1 installed?
