Hard to tell by just that one pic. That is a wierd rear wheel. Good Luck, Rick

I'm going to vote for home made.
It looks to have a Ford Model-A steering and rear axle so it probably has a Model-A transmission also.
It is an unusual design with the Wisconsin engine in the back.
I'm assuming there is a jack-shaft from the engine running up to the front of the transmission with possibly a V-belt clutch assembly ?

That rear wheel screams monster garage to me. I see a spoked rim with a brake drum (very common) attacked to a tractor wheel using welded splines to where it looks to be the outer area of where a tire would mount.

Gotta be a one off, front wheels and carriers look like modified zero turn stuff, cool rear wheels, never saw any like it.

I'd say homemade. Someone had emailed me about it through my website before they listed it. They sent me a ton of pictures. The front axle looks like a Handiman R/T. There are some other cast parts that are from something or other as well. There does look to be some model A stuff in there. I had wondered if it didn't originally have a model A engine, and then the Briggs was fitted on at a later date.
