    It started off a few years back when I bought it from Walmart for ~$79 or so I believe... it has been just sitting in the garage for a long time since I got my GIANT GEBE setup

    Sooooooooo, I took her all apart and repainted her with a John Deere theme.

    She actually came out much better then I imagined in person...

    BTW, Home Depot sells the exact match trademark yellow and green in spray cans for John Deere... total painting costs were about $11 or so

    That is a BMP kit I had and that is my EHO35 with the plastic cover painted flat black! (flat black engine will match my giant boulder when I put it back on!)

    That is my 2nd BMP kit... the 1st was with a titan 50cc with incredible power and this is with the EHO35...

    Love both setups and many many miles on both, but water or rain will kill your ride!

    I am in love with my GEBE setup I must admit! Absolutely perfect with my EHO35 and hitting a solid 141 miles per gallon!

    Looks super!

    There are two things it needs.
    1. John deer decals(available on ebay, any size)

    2. a neat hay trailer or a dummy power takeoff.

    thanks for the review
    Wheres my dog,

    Although I do not care for rear mounted engines, I am starting to lean towards a gebe myself. The only reason i dont like them much is because they just dont quite look right. But with reviews like yours it seems a BMP or gebe is the way to go for total reliable ride.

    Either system has never let me down yet in terms of breaking or wearing out!

    Within a day or two, the GEBE engine setup will just blend in and you will never get the grin off your face!

    I have 400+ miles logged in on the GIANT GEBE without any problem at all!

    Stickers are on order already sir....

    I was thinking of making a tow behind wagon of sorts, just a little short on cash right now for the investment!
