Nothing New Under The Sun

This homemade go-buggy is an interesting little study.  It looks very much like early experimental and homemade tractors from the early Twentieth Century.  A good percentage of the parts probably were made before 1925, and it is reassuring to see that folks in farm country still have the ingenuity to assemble unrelated parts into a new creation.

The problem I see with this machine is that the belt pulley is inaccesible for running buzz saws, washing machines, and other important farm machines.  No Problem really, because both flywheels are drilled for mounting a belt pulley.  I bet the owner locates one and makes this baby go to work.
