Seen at Waitatahuna some 5 decades ago.  For details, see the book The Era of the Bush Tram in New Zealand.

Love it Jose'.

That's the equivalent of a street rat rod. Looks like it's sitting on a turn table. Was also looking fro the brakes, must be the drums on the rear axle.

Definitely model-able.

Jose,
Winna Winna, Chicken Dinna!!! That's a priceless example of making do with what ya got. As far as brakes go Bernd, I'm thinking downshifting(?) followed by vigorous Fred Flintstone action. Or an anchor.
Thanks for making me laugh out loud on Saturday morning!

Sorry for spoiling your fantasies, but didn't you notice the brake drums on the rear wheels? Those Kiwis didn't live in the Stone Age...

Reread post #2. I think I mentioned that it looks like the it has rear brakes. The Flintstone comment was a joke.

I love it! Looks like something the "Little Rascals" aka "Our Gang" would have built.
