Non B9 Projects
These are some of my other hobby projects that are somewhat different. They usually combine some electrical/electronic, mechanical, woodworking, plastics, finishing, making parts, finding reproduced parts or substitutions to make things work & look good again.
Restored 1964 Lennox Kittytrack Lawnmower. Limited numbers, made only for 2 years and distributed mostly in the northern midwest. Shown above with the mower front attachment.
The Kittytrack got to push a little snow in 2001. Snow blade fits in place of mower.
KITTYTRACK SNOW CLEATS
Lennox designed and produced Snow Cleats for the tracks. The were placed on every other cleat of the track and held in with two hairpin cotter pins on each. Made for a pretty rough ride on dry pavement, but really cut into ice and snow and worked great. They were a big pain to install when you needed them if you did not have a heated garage. My hands were freezing everytime I installed these. Plus you have the headache of rotating the tracks to get them all installed.

1957 BMW Isetta Restoration Project. It has a 13 hp, 300cc BMW motorcycle engine & chain drive. Above the car before dismantling and below the chassis after removing the body. I'm still collecting parts for restoration. This is a longer term project to be completed after my B9 Robot.
