That really turned out well! Nice job on the paint scheme.

The latest pickup. I found a 21" Thatcherizer locally for $25. I put it on my current resto mower. The little steel deck self propelled. That one is getting a "restomod" treatment. Putting a modern handlebar with the large bag while keeping most all of the old controls... then paint.




This one is my SR1028 "Repower". It now has a 12.5hp Briggs. This one will be a winter project since the only thing wrong with it is surface rust. Just gotta find someone who has a ton of factory Snapper Red and will let go of some cheap.


Some of the others:



And I have a really good looking 12hp 33" cut "Extra Tough" model, but I don't have a pic of it on the PC. Can't remember the model number off hand, but it's the white handlebar type. I have a couple chasis sittin behind the garage that I don't know what to do with. Don't wanna take them to the scrapper so they just sit.

Anyhow, I think that's all of them. If I forgot a couple, I'll take some pics soon.

Default MY Latest addition

Just picked up a Snapper LT135G411KV with a 12.5 Kohler thats pretty tired, want to replace it with a B&S engine, anyone know what size motors this model came with? or what might fit?
Also have a couple of push snappers too, and a rear engine rider that needs a deck if anyone has one.

This is the Snapper I got for free a while back. I have no idea what model it is, but it's a pre-compliance model, so it must be pretty old. It's an aluminum deck and the engine's been replaced.

Wow,

Some very cool and interesting machines here...

Is it alright to show a few pictures of a Snapper that's been a 'tad' modified?

I got myself a snapper pusher for real cheap. I converted the bag to a side discharge. That darn self propel is ticking me off though. I am going to start a thread on it later today.
