This is being built out of what I've got laying around.  Will be used to shuttle my aging Mother or my wife around at a tractor show in September.  Also, might use it for fun riding for responsible kids around the farm.  The one under construction is mine and the other was a factory or very nicely done model I spotted at a show.   Yes, I intend to paint it MF colors!

Yes, it's been to cold and snowy to go looking for junk to use.

I understand that all to well! Got several things I want to do, just not the courage to brave the cold!

Might look into a good back brace for the times you forget to feather the clutch.

Nice idea, especially for using recycled stuff.

If I tried to make my OL ride on that she'd hit me with the tractor.

Nice job though, I hope she appreciates the effort.

That looks like it is coming along well. I bet that once it is done it will be very sturdy! I also like the handle bars!

That's going to be neat.

Will it be getting an umbrella, and a cooler?

Shuttle pedal hydro and I'll keep in in a low gear.

I like the umbrella idea or maybe some other canopy.  I'll look around.  The cooler, naw, but maybe a charcoal grill. lol
