The green leaf is cover up the motor in the front. so i bought it from a buddy of mine saw it in his parents yard and he told me that it was his fathers at 16 . that him and some friends built it early 60s so it may be earlier it had been in them woods for 30 years thats the age of my friend and it had been parked there for several years. was complete but nothing seemed to work. i gave 100$ for it.started offf getting the hubs off to do the nesscary brakes lines and all had to get 4 new everything .

Thats a great looking little rail. You should be able to pull the front wheels off the ground with a stock engine. Can you put it on the street?

You can flip them around but if they have clips you will have to remove them.

I had to flip around my wide five rims so the 33"tires wouldn't rub on my old mud buggy. They have been that way for about 10 years now without any problems.
