Since Ned mentioned Greasy's grass, maybe he should build something like this…

don't think it hasn't crossed my mind!

on the hustle I can knock out the front and back with the push mower in about 30 or so AND I get my cardio in.

all kidding aside, I have a dingo for the big lifting though.

but, yeah, I've been toying with making a yard goat out of this 50 4T POS I've got laying around...

The Italians? Some Greek guy on this forum made a gearbox for his lathe out of a Vespa 4 speed. Nuts right?

Greasy - impressive! My local is MacLeods - but I can venture to any of the above named...summer is approaching.

Oh - and that mower. little rich down low.

I'll admit those look like solid freebees but I gotta wonder if there was any ham hidden in there? If not, check under the air box lid. Air box ham is a delicacy. Gas tank ham - not so much.

Yeah, BN made out. All I got for freebies with my two scooters was a sludgy gas tank and a can of Starter Fluid.

And air box ham is way better than gas tank ham. Kind've like the difference between smoked BBQ and a burnt steak.

don't make us come over there and rub nuts on this thing, we can't have you mothballing it too long!

We could come rub moth balls on it, too, if we can figure out how to hold their tiny little legs apart.

dude, the grab and hold wasn't nothing man. I was happy for the assist. I had the time and I mos def have the room. no biggie at all.

glad you liked the extras, my only regret is that I didn't take off a bunch of stuff and hide Easter eggs all up in it. or did I?

(for the record, I did NOT draw any dicks on the inside of the glovebox. if there are some, they were already there)

there was *going* to be ham involved. but *somebody* ate it all...

ham will be delivered at a later date to birbs from another offline bet that I'm sure to lose. and actually, he may take me 2~1 on the rubber match. so double hams. a full butts as it were.


somebody being dr. mrs. the greasy, who is a ham monster

hey man, just doing what I can. helping out a friend is all.

I'm kinda like a way station for scoots.

offer is extended for anybody that needs something stashed for a bit. if you find something out here that you need stashed, I've got the room. if you need it picked up, my rates are reasonable.
