 Headed for the show in Penfeild Il. tomorrow.  Brother and I Frankensteined some leftovers and made a butt buggy to ride around the show. .Part John Deere, part Wheel Horse,and part Weber Weeder.  Will let you know how it does if we survive.  Here are some pics.    These pics don't show the "finished Product" with floorboards       Rick

Now that is a cool little contraption! Nice job piecing that together! So... I hope you will be the one in the drivers seat though? Just tell your Brother to wear a set on Knee pads, this way he can be your front  bumper :bigrofl:

In the event of a sudden stop the driver is expected to fly forward and use the passenger as a form of air bag.  OSHA and NTSB  approval is still pending. :D   Rick

Won't it be kinda hard to see around the front person. I guess you could call them the navigator. They should at least have a brake pedal up there!

That's really neat.

I see you stopped the front axle from tilting, with a couple of bolts.

You could give the hood ornament something to do, by lengthening those

bolts with "T" handles, so he could adjust the lean, left or right.

 

Great project. You can just keep adding/modifying as you want, and have fun doing it.

It should get some umbrellas.
