That's a neat looking RER you've got there.

I'm looking forward to seeing this project.

It's very unique looking. Do you have a pic

of what it was new?

What's the power plant?

When you restore that thing pick up some JD 12x8.5 rims with 23x10.50-12 tires. They will stick out just as much as those 6-12s are currently, but tuck under the back really nicely, and really change the look and feel of that thing. It will turn it in to what looks like a 60s or 70s Dune Buggy.

That is a unique rider. Like a little rear engine rider on steroids. Have fun restoring.

That IS more than a RER to Me!  Looks heavy as a reg tractor, kinda backwards is all. Unique steering wheel.  First I have seen one. Never cared much for Gilson, but this one is really kinda special.  Changing color?  I would have to, the Heck with original!  Ha!

Yes, I didn't realize how large it is, until I downloaded the 1st page

in the manuals. That's almost as big as a small Zamboni! Wow.

I think I want one.

Pretty sturdy looking rear end in that thing. I've never seen anything like it up this way.

I'm thinking the same, Brian.

Are you ok with this, your area, my area map? You've got so much more sq km to

hunt through in northern Que. :smilewink:
