That's cool. I wonder if it's factory built.  It has some things on that look like it might be.

I've looked it over in person, and it's definitely unique.  Thought for some reason he told me it was mostly an old Musgrave, but I'm not sure.  He had the whole porch full of oddities like that, that seemed to be on a rotation.  Something different every week!

That engine was a Briggs, right? 

 

How was it driven?  Belt drive?

Yeah, it was belt driven, beneath the machine.  The thing I remembered most, was that the rear wheels were identical to the ones on my gang reel mower set.  The mowers were made by Turfmaster for Simplicity, but I'm unsure who produced those hard rubber covered wheels.  

 

On his machine, the gear shift was right of the seat, and engagement (hand clutch, essentially) was aft of the driver, on the LH side.  I'm guessing that small lever up front was a PTO lever of sorts, for a deck.  I think it has the original Briggs...don't recall the model, but it was early, with an oil bath air cleaner.
