I have one of the frames from what, I don't know. I was going to use it by stretching 6 mil clear plastic over each side, folding the plastic over the frame and gluing it to itself. The same way they did it with fabric and sewing. I offered my frame for $50 last fall which, I thought was a good price. There are a few brochures in our Manuals Section. I have also thought about building one from scratch using 1/2" emt. It is going to be up to your imagination. I gave up on all of these when I came across several metal cabs. Still haven't gotten one on yet. Good Luck, Rick

Curtis did. I got two Curtis cabs from a guy with a big old Ariens in Worcester, MA which I believe is where the Curtis factory is. The Curtis cabs where popular years ago and do show up occassionally. I have two for GTs(Ariens and JD) and one for a full size Ford. After last winter, they will be installed this year,

After looking through some old manuals, I got to thinking that they might have been from another manufacture. Made to fit.

Which other cabs would have been modified? I mean a cozy cab off of what other model(most likely a JD)

A cab is something I haven't looked at much. I had thought that there was some manufacture that had one to fit.

Here are pictures of it mounted on the guys mower I got it from. Needs so TLC but the pattern is worth a lot to take to get new vinal made

There's a guy in Wisconsin that has a metal cab for an Ariens S/GT series. I have swapped Emails with him a couple times, got other things I need before that for mine.
