Wow! A perfect platform for a garden tractor conversion. A floorboard with the vertical shaft motor under the front seat. The shaft goes through the floor, add a centrifugal clutch to eliminate the foot unit, with belt drive to the rear transaxle and the shifter back up through the floor for easy access. A three speed and reverse would probably be the most available and some have a disc brake built right on the unit. Everything you need in one package for a few hundred bucks and a minimum of fabrication. I see them at swap meets and farm equipment auctions. Saw some on the bulliten board at the Vista Gas Engine Museum in October.
