What a nice little sweeper. It's in amazing condition for being 50+ years old.

I agree... you would think the grass bag would have rotted by now.

Awe man all that I can find is either Cheap plastic body with plastic wheels or Vintage ones that I would really hate to cut into.

 

Nice old Park or Parker? sweeper $100 http://pennstate.cra...4944906357.html

 

Really Really nice IH Cub Cadet pull behind $100.http://pittsburgh.cr...4973772534.html

 

 

To much plastic to mount an engine to.But it is a walk behind. $70 used once.

http://pittsburgh.cr...4957512314.html

 

Seems that $100-$150 is what they are going for.I'll keep lookin One will pop up.

 

 

Oh I have a Low hour Tecumseh H50 that runs awesome 2x 5hp briggs and a 5.5hp honda and a whole box full of engine pulleys,idler pulleys and Bunch of belts.Thinking it would be easy to attach pulley to wheel and drive it via belt and idler.

Cool ! I like the CC one too. I have seen some of the older metal ones converted to self propelled such as you are thinking of trying by using self propelled reel mower wheels, engine and driveline. Sounds like a neat project.

 

I might email the seller tonight.
