This, for those few who might not know, is a Moto-Mower.

I built the battery cover and frame cover, using 18 ga mild steel and a homemade break.

The tractor did not come to me with lights, most I have seen did, and my thought is that this one did not leave the factory with them.

The paint is AC corporate orange and the wheels are done with Ford light grey.

I used 8 1/2" CC wheels on the rear with Hi-Run 23 X 10.50 -12 the fronts are stock with Deestone three ribs. Because of the wheels the tool box has been narrowed 2" as well.

 We will be attending Shows in Illinois, and Indiana next month. If you see us please stop and visit?

The truck in the background is a 1967 3/4 to pickup. 304 V8 4 speed tranny power brakes and deluxe interior. Custom wheels, because the originals are a 7 1/4 X 6 bolt pattern.

 

she doesnt happen to have a lawn ranger that is gold flaked does she?

She does indeed have a gold flaked Lawn Ranger. She also has an 856 WH with a custom hood and her own special logo. She had a Massey Executive, that I messed around and sold, so now we have the Moto-Mower. I won't be selling this one. Many tears were shed over the Massey.

 Thanks to TomLGT195 for his help supplying parts for this one.
