HI,

We would like some information on this Manco riding mower made in Florida.

Is the Clinton the right engine for it?

What year? Was it the first riding model they made?

Note the one wheel in the back.

I have seen some with 2 wheels in the back.

Are they common in Florida?  With all that sand I would think it would sink.

Thanks,

DB1

Never seen one before, but I like what I see! 

 

That Clinton model is a Red Horse series.  They are not supposed to be rare, considering how many parts I have because of guys stocking for them back in the day, but very few turn up.  Its worth making it run!  What model is it?

Different looking little critter, isn't it? I've never seen one before either, but I like what I see as well--- looks like it came out of Mad Max, Beyond Thunderdome, lol.. Bet you'll have fun with it.

Hello this project is finally getting started it is really coming along quite well. One thing I am not sure on is the deck is it suppose to be black or red? There are traces of black paint on it but I don't know if that is original or not. Thanks

Hi Poncho62,

The Manco is well-built.  We are very impressed by the design and the materials used in it's construction.  My son's idea of the red and black theme really makes it pop, too.  We will be posting more videos soon.

As far as we know, it is the same Manco that made mini bikes.

They were made in Florida.  We are still looking for more information on them.

Interesting. Something I never knew. A lot of the tractor companies sold minibikes and go karts. Artic cat made minibikes and sold tractors.

I'd like to learn more about this one. Manco was still producing products in the mid 90s. I got a brand new manco american express 2 5hp go kart for easter in 1995.

Thanks for the information.  I'll bet the minibike came first.  I just wonder...

I'll bet your go-kart is well built, too.

 

If you go on youtube there is an updated video on the Manco.

The "new" seat is an implement seat that my son and I just thought would go perfectly with this mower.

It looks like it was made for it.  But, the truth is the pipe was so thin it needed extra support for this heavy cast iron seat.

 

The guy with Manco minibike on youtube looked like he was having a lot of fun.

Check it out!

Candy

I've owned a manco streaker and a manco Thunderbird mini bike as well.

They were well built. And if you look at that tractor you can see minibike traits.

Do the wheels look like this?
