As usual, Im tooling around on Craigslist, and see this little oddity.  Im no Gravely guru, so Im bringing it to the forum.  Ive never seen or heard of one of these. 

 

Is this a real thing? or did someone ad a seat and weld on a front axle?

I can't say for sure. But.. it does have that Home made look to it. Someone must have gotten tired walking behind that unit :D

Im thinking home made as well, but that would be a pretty cool piece to have if it were real!

Looks like an L tried to eat a Snapper RER, and got full halfway through.

It is homemade, but by a pretty talented machinist.  I'd like to have it just to see how something like that would behave.

 

Maybe Gravely should have made one?
