Homemade Z on Ebay

Someone converted a Scag WB into a Z and put it on ebay. I wonder how it works?

I'd hate to be him though if somebody is injured on one and tries to sue Scag and Scag finds out that somebody is out there modifying and selling something that was not engineered as a rider unit and possibly putting Scag in a liability situation. Also, why would anyone buy something that has been "rigged" together to the point you likely would not be able to find off the shelf replacement parts?

I saw that about a year ago, i guess he's been doing it for a while. i am a little scepticle of how good they are. There is probly certain stresses in a rider that a wb can't handle[for instance, casters.] They are tempting when one is 1,000$ and a real rider is 6500$ at least.
