Here's why:



I have a 14hp B&S motor i'm going to install, and I am looking for a chassis that I can modify enough to fit in. This narrows the models I can use to Corvettes, Mustangs, Jeeps, Hummers, and Cadillac SUVs.


EDIT: Changed title

haha awesome

I'd recomend checking out the thrift stores around here. Chance are they'll have a dead one that you can swap the motor out with.

Yeah, 14 horse does seem to be a bit much. My Metropolitan had a 3 horse.

BTW, somebody stole my Metropolitan.

Meh, it is what I have available to me, so if I kill myself, oh well.

BTW: Does this mean that no one has seen one of these things for sale just laying outside someone's home or anything?

As an update, my wife got me my ride for Valentine's Day.

I've got my eyes on a mini-4-wheeler frame in a local pawn shop. As soon as my trailer sells, I'll have step 2 finished, and be ready to start Frankenstein-ing this beast together. BTW, that 14hp briggs takes up 2.5 cubic feet. It is gonna be a tight fit.

...more to come
