seem's that someone spent some time and tinkering on an odd idea!
what makes my cub very rare is that it's the only one I've ever owned.

Yes but not on a CUB. Saw a MH Pony once with NF.

Neat.

Did the firm make narrow front ends for the other tractors listed in the link?
I have an excuse. CRS.

Yes it was built by George and now owned by Steve.

Unique set up, note in the last picture the steering wheel shaft has a universal joint. I would like to know what the designer had in mind, since both wheels pivot separately.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Probably a modification to fit through the narrow rows of a vineyard. I've seen pictures of other Vineyard Cubs, but the front ends are just shortened, not completely redesigned like that.

The right axle extension is removed, and the right final is mounted directly to the transmission just like the left. The driver sits centered behind the gas tank, with the foot controls obviously modified as well.
