Hi-speed Cub Mowing!

With Harley pulling the mower at 20 MPH it won't take long to get the barnyard cut. :lol:

I hope that hat has a chin guard. A lot of hats have been mowed up like that. Looks like fun but you won't get that longggg seat time like I get on my loboy.

Would it be possible to see some close ups of the engine on the Cub? It looks for be slightly modified. :lol: What size engine is in there?

WOW! It looks like it belongs in there! By chance, I hate to ask for more pictures, but would it be possible to see more? Perhaps, the whole process. If it is too much of a hassle, could you PM me and I we can maybe send pics over the email? Thank you by the way for the pic. How does she sound?

All I can say is that is wicked awesome! WOW! I love the flappers at idle. Too cool! It was an awesome job on the overall project. It looks professional from what I can see on the video/picture. Do you use it for any work or is it just for the awesome factor? Thank you for posting the video. I am amazed!

That's amazing. If I were to fab something like that up, I'd try to make it look as close to stock as possible and take it to pulls. The ultimate Sleeper Cub! I guarantee it'd turn every head.

Mike, take note that Bob said "Nomex" not "Spandex".

With all that horsepower going to waste, why not hang a 72 inch woods mower under Harley?
