His ad says delivery available. At the price he wants he better be offering free delivery to anywhere in the world.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I saw this on Facebook a few days ago.

Will the final drives just rotate 180 degrees on the rear axle tube?

My understanding is that some machining is required to make it work. If it was as simple as rotating the finals, this modification would be a lot more plentiful.

green paint always drives up the price, even more so if a lil yellow is mixed in ;)

L.o.l.. I spotted the add on craigslist earlier too. Tis a wee bit pricey for my Cub tastes.
I'd take the chrome exhaust stack maybe.....
But , to each their own.

Maybe it's from all the extra eating over the last few weeks but that double wide seat seems strangely appealing. :shock:

Something doesn't seem quite right with the steering tie rods in the center. This doesn't look like the regular Cub setup or the Lowboy ove runder setup. Or am I just looking at the picture wrong? (I know somebody's gonna have to dredge up poor old man Ackerman in this discussion).

Nothing seems quite right with the entire tractor! :lol:
I think the tie rod is an optical illusion. If the wheels were straight I think they would look right.

Part of me likes it and part of me is baffled by it ! I don't need a $6,500.00 go cart but it appears nicely done, The color is a few shades darker than my old 71 RS Camaro. People do this to Allis B's in Europe for mowing Orchards & Vineyards but this tractor doesn't even have a hitch. If it can't earn its keep I don't have a place for it. Not to mention the Mrs. might have a problem with the $6,500.00 ! TJ

The steering wheel is cranked all the way over to the left. The left front wheel should be way over to the left, but isn't. It almost looks like he widened the left end of the axle but didn't do the corresponding lengthening of the tie rod. If you look closely at the tie rod itself, it looks like it is set to the fully narrowed position. Maybe he cranked it over to the left so the 8 inches of toe-in wouldn't be obvious in the pictures.

People spend a fortune building something like this, only loved by the person that built it. Then they think they can find somebody else that wants it bad enough for them to get their money back out of it. All I see is a parts tractor and the only good parts are an engine, the tires, and some sheet metal. To me, it is about $5,000 overpriced.

Don’t believe a tractor guy built it and if sold it won’t go to a tractor guy.
