My Bumper

well finaly got fed up and made me a bumper.....

can you say ramming speed,



haha gotcha!! just a bumper for my tractor. 20yrs of abusive drivers broke the fiberglass hood hinge so i fixed it and built a better bumper. it had a pos alum 3" x 1/8" flat stock bent around for a bumper, and it was mangled.

while i was at it the seat pan was rusted to hell so i made a bracket and mounted a ole steel tractor seat on it...

oh how i want too haha. i dont totaly "own" it so cant make it race worthy "yet"

for being 25is yrs old it still runs good. no engine rebuild yet, tho it does need a lower main seal. i washed it 4 monthes ago with degreaser and only have about 6hrs on it and its messy again.

its fun just put new muffler can on it 3 new idelr pullys and new deere belts and it will pull the front end up about 15" in 5th gear.
