There was one of comparable size at Canandaigua last year powered by a JD"E" engine. Don't remember if it was a 1 1/2 or 3 hp. Of course it was done up in JD colors. Someone must have a picture of it.

It was an attention getter . It was shown in a previous post awhile back and here it is with it's 1 1/2 engine. Just trying to have some fun, even in NJ on the way through on a constant "BREAK" .

AS Chris Matthews said when Oboma was elected President. "It makes shivers go up and down my leg" The muffler on the right side would make shivers go up and down your leg when riding that John Deere motorcycle.
