    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.

    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.
