Ok guys heres what I got, for my next project I'm thinking about swappin over a 102 pedastal,hood and grill onto a 104 frame, the 102 I got was in real bad shape,frame was so rusted out that I ended up cannin it cause I got tired of tripin over it lt and movin it around,but I did keep all the parts above, since the 104 i picked up was for parts I thought about swappin out the grill & stuff, Other then the quick attach for the deck everything else measures out on the front end to bolt up. Since it had square fender on it I'm pretty sure its all the same,I could be wrong. Oh yeah I got the rubber seat & mount off it too. lil rust but no rot,It can be saved. let me know whatcha think,

I think most things will fit since they're both narrow frames, but it may require some modifications. But, why not just savage the 104? The 104 will have the quick attach points, which is simpler for attachments. Also, in my opinion, the zig-zag grille is better looking. The 104 is the part of the first series to use the QA attachments, which are more readily available than the pin on attachments that the 1x2/1x3 series used.

well TMO ur right as far as the qa, i I was goin g to use the 104 frame and the 102 metal,so technically it'll still have the qa, besides I do have a really sharp lookin 104. I kinda like the looks of the 102 for some reason, the 104 i got for parts isnt in the greatest shape,i dont know it was just a thought,maybe I'll just try to find somthing else, wouldnt mind havin a original to do.I missed out on one last fall over 20 bucks! haha wasnt home when the auction was ending and got beat by 20 bucks,guess it wasnt meant to be huh.lol

I say go for it. I think it would be cool to have the 102 look with the advantage of having the quick attach features. I do like the z shape grills better too in a way. I really like the looks of the 122 I just got which would be the same look. I just don't care for the square fenders. I like the rounded fenders and metal pan seats.

I had both, the 1x2/1x3 and the 1x4/1x5 series. I had two 122s and two 123s and three 104s and a 125. I really like the looks of the 104s, but, I too, don't like the look of the fenders. So, since I had a 107 in pieces, I put the fender deck from it on a 104. I have pictures, I just need to find them.

Yes you will have to post pics of it. I really like the round fenders that were on the Originals, 70's, and 100's and I am sure there are more or the full fender like on the 147 I had. What I find pretty cool is that you can interchange a good bit of the stuff without modification or if it does take some modification it isn't much.

Here's the 104 with the 107 fenders. I kept the old foot rests on it and two of the frame holes lined up with two holes in the battery box of the fender deck, but I had to drill some new holes elsewhere. I also had to cut out the area for the gear shift a little.
