thats better the fog has cleared. it looks as if from the photos that there are all sorts of pedestrian tractors laid around i just wish that i lived a little closer to you as these old machines seem to be in a good supply in your country

Well John,from time to times yes, but you must be lucky to find one for a good cheap price. On 2dehands.be there is a guy who sell a Holder E10 in good original condition with a original reversible plough; Noweone did a bid yet.
Do you know what the red one on the pictures is John..... its a Fahr KT10 (Bucher) original equiped with a 2 cilinder petrol boxer engine (very seldom !) but this one have a Citroen 2 hp 2 cilinder boxer engine. Its not original anymore but usefull for spare parts. The guy who sell me this machine had also a second Motostandard for sale,just the same like mine; and also another Motostandard U9

yes its fitted with 2 cv car engine, it was a cheap solution to bild a car engine in it. Now that would give something John, a walk behind tractor with a 6 cilinder boxer engine......ready for the racetracks......

I brought not one but 2 Motostandards U5 and a JAP engine, i think its a 5.
I also brought a small hoe for my dad who will use it in his vegetable garden. The guy who sold me the items had also a Clifford 4 powered with a BSA 500 ccm engine.
