That is a very nice and clean, un molested Wheelhorse. You got a bargin, my friend!

I also notice they turned the rear wheels around--gives you a little wider stance!!!

Enjoy--

Now i have to dis-agree , Don--at least with what i havve seen over the years. Have had over a dozen "Horse's alone over last 8 years--and seen ,many more at shows and parades, and that;s maybe only the third time, I have seen them mounted outwards....

Hate to create an argument & don't mean to, but the offset on the Wheel Horse wheels (at least of this era) won't go on the other way....they would rub the the trans/sheetmetal under the fender.
So how you see it in the pics is the correct way.

The older Horses with the 6X12 tires may have been reverseable?

After replacing the 8 speed gearbox on my 312 I was quite perplexed to discover that my gas tank and related sheet metal would no longer fit between the wheels.
Then I noticed the offset on the wheels. After removing the wheels and turning them around the right way everything fit just fine.
