I thought you readers might like to see the project I worked on last winter. I started with a golf cart rear end, lawn mower transmission, and old starter generator gleaned from several visits to the junk yard. My trusty International LA would provide power.

After much fitting, welding, drilling and bolting, the frame was complete.

When I started planning this project I wanted to have an all-wood body, so I bought some rough cut oak from a local sawmill and stored it in my garage attic for about 18 months. Turns out that was not quite long enough, because the wood did shrink a little after final assembly.

This unit attracts a lot of attention with electric start, ammeter to show battery charging, and headlights. I have not found suitable taillights yet, but I'm still looking for them.
