    Go to a welder and make it trailer like a Velke. There to rigid in a fixed position.

    the fixed position is way better man, having to turn your body all unnatural like that with velke style ride ons has always been a dumb idea imo. i rode a proslide on hydro 48 mowers for years and they were great, they glide really smooth unlike wheels and you are still at ground level so no bending over. they older ones had to keep springs around that broke often, but i think they redesigned them as the pictures look a little different now. dont ride over concrete with them or they will wear out prematurely.
