I'd ditch the mower deck, throw an 800cc Rotex engine on it, Ron Woods exhaust, tires and kick some redneck butt at the track.

I think its worth the gamble.

Ill tell him $125 with the gas can and new propane tank laying next to it.

Battery still had charge, maybe it just needs a good charge.

Should be able to get $400 out of it come summer.
