That was fast!
But, it did appear to be in great shape.

its in great shape even with correct wheels.. it's had several paint jobs over the years. Motor plate is setup for a harbor freight predator motor.

my son may not fit it in now, but were going to finish it together and bring to pittsburgh. orange was him at the convention driving somebodys cart.

Slinky, can you post a couple pics? I'd especially like to know if the HF motor clears the body. Mine is all original except it's missing the motor. I've been looking for the correct one, but am willing to adapt it if it doesn't mean cutting the body.

Thanks!

Jim-

I have a 6.5hp Honda GX motor in mine. You need to carefully choose the mounting position- but the gas tank goes right through the hole in the body.

The recoil and header have to be carefully relocated.

No pics- it's put away for the winter sad smiley

Jim i havent bought the motor yet, seen other ones where they did cut the body, but i dont want to do that. may relocate the gas tank to above the motor with some kind of risers, to clear body.. but i wont know that until i get the motor.
