    So I have an hold 90s aluminum Honda deck(chrome handle bars), a 2013ish hrx216 motor, and hydro tranny out of a hrc216hxa. Plus wheels tires and handle bar components off a well taken car of hr215 commercial. Let's Frankenstein these together and make one bad a*# Honda mower.

    Getting across first small issue. Aluminum deck sets the trans at a different angle which makes it closer to the motor. Drive shaft is a little to long

    I've always liked the aluminum deck but most of them on had the 140cc motor on them. I have an old hr 216 with aluminum deck and 163cc motor but it has the 2 speed tranny. I wanted the hydro tranny. So now I have, in my opinion, the perfect Honda 21". Mowed a few passes in some thick st Augustine last night in the dark and it cut perfect, started first pull, and pulled good through the grass.
