cub info.

Thu Dec 06, 2012 1:18 am

I'm trying to buy a 1949 cub serial number 83435. This cub is modified,
the clutch peddle is located on the left side. The right rear axle housing
looks like it was replaced with a left short axle housing. This cub has
a very narrow rear tread with. Dose anyone have information on this
type modification? I will try to get some photo's and post them.

At least as far as how wide the rows are between the grapevines. Being half French, and half English by ancestry, and completely American by birth and mindset, I thought that was funny.

No. The peddles are cub peddles with the clutch moved
to the left side. Photo's tomorrow.

Does it have an underslung exhaust? Probably an vineyard cub, but was thinking might have been used in an orchard....any history of it that you know of?

There have been several Cubs out of California that appear similar to the one you posted.
Here are some pics, all courtesy of "Graves Implement".
