History
Started out as a (obviously) very tiny riding mower. Somewhere back in the 70's a local farmer turned it into a go-kart for his 2 boys, both now in their 40's. I picked it up some years ago with the original engine and a slightly modified drivetrain. This one had regular tire and tube setup as opposed to the solid rubber tires they came with originally. Gone was the F-N-R transmission and a 5 speed peerless 700 in it's place. Even had an electric start option, but was in such poor shape the engine had to go.

It is undergoing as much a modernization as a restoration, as parts for this 'baby' tractor are impossible to find in this area, and my fabrication skills are severely lacking. Still, I'm converting it with a modern overhead valve briggs engine, peerless silent trac hydrostatic transaxle combined with a front end I have yet to devise. Intent is to safely have it be a small yard puller for trailers or self powered equipment. It will be equipped with pull cord type kill switch for fall-off safety and battery powered lights.
