This is what I sent to the seller of the "cushman"

errr not a question. It is a correction actually.

That's not a Cushman. It is a Rand. Made by Rand Fiberglass Corporation. Few people know the diference, but Cushman's made thier own engines and had different trannys and a different number of lugs on the wheel. Why do I know? I used to own and drive a Rand. The sub frame in the rear made for unusual handling techniques.

And now for my MA friends...it weighed 1,500 lbs and that Onan twin put out 16 Hp. my insurance company wanted to charge me big bucks becasue of the cc's ( huge) I argued weight and speed and got the rate reduced. It scared me to death one time when I got it up to 45 mph. Body roll to the extreme. fiberglass body had cracks where it had already been over on both sides. Wiper, fan, gas heater, worm gear steering. hydraulic brakes. nastiest starter access on anything I've ever worked on. Oh yea, and after I got is home I pulled a dead rat out of the shroud.
