    Re: Lawn boy catalytic converter

    All this motorhead talk is great. It certainly reveals that us Lawn Boy fans have one common denominator-we love most anything involving internal combustion! My early interests began with motorcycles. I was an adolescent during the late 60’s and early 70’s when Japanese motorcycles were as common as house flies. What a great time to be alive! 2 stroke or 4 stroke, the roads were filled with these mechanical wonders that were cheap, looked beautiful, and could transport you away to wherever you wanted to go. My dreams of owning a bike were fulfilled when my Dad allowed me buy one as long as I got my driver’s license. He helped me cut a deal on my first motorcycle—a brand new 1973 Honda CB 125–paid for with my own money, of course. I was a fan of 4 strokes at the time and Honda was a dedicated 4 stroke motorcycle maker. I didn’t care for the noise or the smoke of the Yamahas, Suzukis, Kawasakis and (remember?), Bridgestones. But they sure were a lot faster.

    After all those years of despising 2 strokes, I sure love the older Lawn Boys. Funny how that is. And another thing I find perplexing is how Lawn Boy had something that was elegantly simple and reliable, and with the stroke of a few beaureacrat pens, it became something complicated and (dare I say) homely looking. All because a small, noisy crowd said that those little 2 strokes were killing people by the thousands, not to mention, the planet. I often wonder if the day will come when a guy like me will be arrested for operating anything that uses internal combustion for power. I hope I’m enjoying Lawn Boy (and motorcycle) Heaven by then.

    Just my three cents worth of ramblings.

    Don't take much to amuse us gearheads and get us fired-up ! here's a pic of my 98cc. Ducati Bronco (circa 1960-65) A great little street bike for my paper-route. Yep the 60s were THEEEE years to be a teen with a license, Road-Rockets & Muscle-Cars ruled the roads.

    Re: Lawn boy catalytic converter

    As long as we're walking down memory lane, my love affair with the I/C engine began as a kid with Cox model airplanes and cars. What fun those little 1/2 A engines were, torquing off the neighbors with their high pitched scream, cutting your fingers on the prop and the castor oil in the fuel ruining your clothes,,,lol.

    LeRoy Cox was a genius, keeping the tolerances on his engines down to millionths and doing so on modified screw making machines, unbelievable.

    Regards

    OH YAH—I forgot about those! On winter nights my friend and I would run these little cars with those engines in each other’s basements until the air had a blue haze. Loved the noise and the smell! But our Moms did not share that love.
    I remember our cars were called “Baha Bugs”. The little Cox engine had a tiny recoil starter just like Dad’s lawnmower. I don’t know what ever happened to mine, but I do have a little grandson who was born with the “motor” gene. He would’ve loved it.

    Re: Lawn boy catalytic converter

    This is off the subject but I was just looking on craigslist, Cleveland, Ohio for lawn boy mowers and I came across someone that had a lot of about 60 Lawn boys for sale. I wish I had the money and room to keep them all. Hey Jeff wouldn't that be fun to have to start your own Lawn Boy shop shop?
    I copied the browser address if anyone wants to take a look.

    Re: Lawn boy catalytic converter

    Hi Jerry,

    I'd have to build a pole barn for those 60 mowers, but yeah, starting a repair/resale shop is something I'd consider.

    Regards

    Jeff
