Hi, me and my brother-in-law picked this up,the guy that had it said he believed it was one of the first SpeedX made,he's saying there were less than 100 made,I don't believe its the original motor(it does run,Briggs&Stratton)appears to have a what looks to be Model T rearend and trans,this thing is a beast,I really don't believe its home made,I think it will be on E-Bay under Garden Tractors any help idenifing this would be great, Thanks, Rick

Sorry I don't know what it is but it looks really cool:smiles:

Keep us informed on what you find out about it.

I'm not an expert, but it doesn't look to me like a Speedex, or a Panzer. Speedex is still in business, so you might consider sending them the pic and see what they say. Panzer closed a long time ago, but there are owner's groups out there. I think that Greg is right in that Kevin probably knows what it might be and also probably has one in his barn.

Are you sure it is not just an old homemade tractor? Maybe something some one just made up in there barn? Just a thought.

Since the guys name on E-bay is blackjackjakexx and the guy who posted heres name is blackjackjakexx, i think you might be on to something Joe. :D
