Maybe or maybe not.  It makes the wheels in my head turn.

I see a hacked up $100 mower with the front forks off of a $50 jap scooter. If it ran and didnt have any design issues, it might be worth $75.. but it doesnt and he wants $200...and YOU have to finish his project for him. I dont get it. I like the part where he says "it just needs a linkage hooked up" That should only take a few minutes. But what he meant is "the clutch doesnt work because I cut the pedal off and cant figure out how to make it work, so you fix it"   :wallbanging:

That would work great in my yard with all the trees if it had a deck.

I like it!

 

13.5 hp. Do a pulley swap and bigger tires on the rear. Would have a stable ride and go 45 mph!

Looking at the machine, it seems the user would have to be pretty tall to reach those controls while sitting. Imagine sitting back on this thing and easily reaching and turning, I see lower back pain in the new fool errrr owners future.
