Although it was in running condition when I bought it, the frame welds were broken and it was being held together with hose clamps!
I broke it down to bare bones, and the real work started with stripping and sandblasting the tons of thick, black paint all over everything!
Lot's of paint and rust!
10 HP Briggs & Stratton "Animal" motor
What a mess! The guy I bought it from told me it was built by some guy who owns a famous rod shop......right.....
D.O.A. Time for a rebuild
