While helping a friend clean out his barn, he gave me these 2 wheelers. He knows nothing about them aside from that they are old. Can anybody help identify them?
Here is the first one - I couldn't find any labels or markings aside from the engine. which is a Wisconsin single with morse/fairbanks magneto. It has huge gear reduction housings for each wheel and looks like 2 ways of running the belt for a high and LOW range. The engine engages/disengages the drive pulley by moving the ENGINE. It slides on two rod rails and the handle pushes it forward, tensioning the pulley - no idler used! The handles are a really faded almost powder blue. Two levers on the cross bar/handlebar - one engages the drive belt as just described, second engages a height adjustment for the rear mounted implement - so you could lock/release the height on the fly? This thing is STOUT- big and heavy.
A few pictures;
Any ideas what this is?
Second one is much smaller and lighter. I found a label on it under the engine platform but have never heard of the manufacturer before - National Co-operatives?... Small briggs looking single mounted on a front tine tiller style gearcase. Here's the pictures;
Thanks for any help or info!
