Here are some picture of my finished product. Sandy Lake was great at helping replicate the hubs for the dual set up. I think they made about ten pair of them based on the actual specs from Simplicity, They fit perfectly. For about $225 I thought it was a steal. The help with pulling power and more importantly they look great. That's my two year old son Drem at the helm with his Nanny from Poland. Now all I need are decals. Anyone got extras. I can't pay much my wife took my check book after she saw what the restoration cost me. I rebuilt a blower and mower deck as well.The mounts I made from shelf brackets and the lights were $12.95 light from auto zone. They look good to me and work great. Let me know what you think.Best regards,Mark MohnStamford CT

My name is Mark Mohn and I have been looking at the site for about a year. Its a great diversion from work and it got me interested in purchasing a Simplicity Landlord. After much consideration I purchased a 1964 Model 314. What a classic.
Any way, I have been restoring it for about a month. Actually, I have been going at it hard because I also obtained a snow blower with it and after last years snow falls I have absolutely no intention of ever shoveling again. I thought you would like to see where I am in my project. I must say your site made my restoration project possible. Otherwise I would have been lost. Each and every aspect of your site's members and information played a key role in my success. Thanks.
As I have never done anything like this before. I found it to be a lot of fun and a huge pain in my back side. My kids will love this thing. My wife thinks I'm nuts. She might be right.
