handbuilt and customized tractors



When I'm not building tractors, I'm designing other odd vehicles just for the fun of it. I enjoy bringing these to tractor shows and parades.

Old Time Buggy

I used an 8 hp Briggs & Stratton engine, a 5-speed transmission, and a rear end from a John Deere rider. The buggy has push cart wheels and springs from snowmobile skis that are turned upside-down.

I used a Honda 500 front frame and a starting engine from a John Deere R. The seat is from an old John Deere manure spreader and the gas tank is modified from a John Deere model A tractor.

Old Time Tricycle

The front wheel is from an old milk cart and the rear wheels are hand-built. The frame is a modified bicycle frame. I later added a box in the back for deliveries.
