Here is Steve Buttram's tricycle Cub with Gary Dotson getting the seat time. This was built by the late George Willer. All members of this web site.

Then there is Gary's Cubota Cub which is powered by a Kubota engine.

Ken,
I believe that's the back of the late George Willer's Tricycle Cub. George was a great friend and mentor to MANY folks here on the forum, so I'm sure you'll get many more responses. George was a master machineist, and hand built the Tricycle Cub, including all of the machining needed for the tricycle front wheels. The Cub itself was a pile of junk when George found it. George was a huge part of this forum for many years, helped more people than you could ever imagine, and his sickness and final passing touched nearly everyone here.

I believe that Gary Dotson was able to acquire the tricycle cub from the estate sale last fall.

Steve Buttram bought the tricycle Cub from George's estate. Gary has "Scotty", another well done restoration of George's.

George's Cubs for the most part and some of his other tractors are now being cared for by some of our members and they couldn't have better homes to carry on George's passion for old iron. The Rat Cub and the Tricycle Cub belong to Steve Butram, Casper belongs to another member, Roy has one of the twin Cub's (Shorty and Squatty) and the M I think. Gary has one as well I think, but they will pop in and let us know. Scotty, Scruffy, Sandy, Cub Bud, Nancy and Rambo were the others in his collection. I think most of them went to forum members. George was a friend and mentor to many of us and made a lot of us think. When we said we weren't sure it could be done, he kicked us in the butt and said yup you can do it. Because of George and Rick I have the projects built that I do. Because of them both, I have other ideas - to make my Cubs even more interesting and useful.

And we cannot forget the ultimate Cub configuration built by Rick Prentice:
