I just picked up two Gravelys (1969 and 1974) with sulkys. Can anyone tell me about the one on the left? I have not seen any photos online of that style.

Does it have suspension or just heavy bracing on the axle?

It just has heavy bracing. The color matches the tractor.

No expert but I would say the one made of C channel is a home brew.

Nice sulky but it is a home made stiffened brace. It might have been broken at one time.

Here are some additional photos. It appears as if it was built in a jig as it is very  true. But it could be homemade as the seat is shot and maybe taken from an old one.
