We Think This Lawnmower Would Make One Awesome Pit Bike!

A lawnmower? Yeah, but not just any lawnmower. This is a really cool Fairbanks Morse Lawn mower that was marketed towards women in the 1950’s and is an awesome example of early riding lawmowers. In truth, we couldn’t care less if it mows or not, as we just want to make it run and move under it’s own power again. Think about running around the swap meet, races, or neighborhood on this thing! It’s way cooler than the typical scooter, and while we know it isn’t nearly as utilitarian as a golf cart, it sure it something that would turn heads as you went whizzing by.

And unlike a golf cart, this would look at home cruising the grounds at a tradition hot rod show, the swap meet, or wherever else you want to take it. What do you think? Darr Hawthorne says we need it with a hot Briggs and some NOS Nitrous. I can’t argue with that logic!

Here is all the info from the seller, and more photos.

Will deliver within a 50 mile radius of us. This is a RARE Fairbanks Morse Lawn mower. This was the 34th one off the assembly line for this model. This was put out in the 1950’s as a womens mower. This is the hard to find, bullet shaped fenders and hard tires. The engines is a Briggs & Stratton and is free moving. No holes in the metal. Tires are in great condition. This is all original. I don’t think it would take much to get it going again. It’s been sitting in the polebarn forever just need it gone. This is a rare find for the collector of odd lawn mowers. Like to see it gone, but I’m not it a hurry, so don’t throw a low amount at me……………. $1000.00 or OBO, Cash ONLY. Pick up only…………….I don’t like to hold items, too many no shows…………I’m located outside of Alba, Michigan, Just off of C42 and 131…………………..Call 231-584-2007…………..I don’t respond to emails at all. Leave a phone number and message if no one answers, someone will get back with you………..Please no calls after 9:00 p.m. or before 8:00 a.m………….Thank you
