Interesting machine but it doesn't look very user friendly. Is that a direct solid link steering with no gearing? That and the steel wheel for a steering wheel look like a really good way to break an arm in multiple places. Don
The entire steering column is out of a Ford model-T.
The steering gears are directly under the steering wheel and they came in a 4 to 1 and a 5 to 1 ratio.
That type of steering worked just fine in millions of cars built between 1909 and 1927.
That defiantly looks like a home made rider to me, especially with the Ford model-T steering.
I have a very similar design tractor that was made out of a Standard Twin / Viking walk behind tractor.
I also have a rider that was made out of a Shaw walk behind tractor and it has a Ford model-T steering as well.
