Nice find.

The information below is from a 1973 Roper brochure.

Hitch and front weight box look home made to me bit very well built.Looks like it spent a few years towing something heavy around.
 
Person that used it must of had really short left leg lol.Notice the wooden block on the left foot rest.


Thanks. I thought the wooden block was a genuine part! :-)

I tried to paste pictures into the text and it did't work. I then went to the full editor and was able to attach the pictures. Unfortunately, you saw the unedited post before I got the attachments added - so please try again.
