Finished the Choremaster, Built a sulky for it and at the first show this year a friend of mine made me an offer on it I couldn't refuse. Sold it and then wished I hadn't. A week ago he decided he wanted to sell it so I bought it back. Here are some pics of it with the sulky on it. I am in the process of swapping out the throttle wire for a lever and cable so when the grandkids ride it they  just squeeze the lever to go and let up to stop.

Great looking restoration.
Does the sulky have any brakes?

Great job!  That Choremaster looks beautiful. 

 

Does the sulky have any brakes?

 

Oh yes.  They system does bother the soles of your shoes, though.

Nice looking tractor! and sulky.  :thumbs:  I've got a question for you. How does the kick stand stay up? On mine I just have a wire I hook on the recoil to hold it up.

Very nice job, looks like its always been together. You will have to put a little basket on the rear of the cart for those flea market shopping runs.

I have a little nob at the end of the frame that the kickstand rod pops over to keep it up. Should be some pics with this note.

thanks for the pics. I'm wondering if the kick stand on mine is just bent some. All have to take a look tomorrow.

That is why they are called "brake shoes"!

Eventually I will put scrub brakes on the sulky, but for now I have too many other projects on the shop floor.
