This is also a 453E like my second one..
But unlike the second one .. this one has the body. And the tub is original except for the missing bottom ! Yes someone cut the bottom off intending to replace it and ..never got far. No biggy that’s half the work done.
All the parts & pieces are in bins.. ALL taken apart.. Again that’s half the job done ! Win Win.. So what’s missing:
- The motor. However I got with it a 20 hp Honda.. Yessss
- The Clutch.. which was most likely still on the motor.
- The seat cushion.. But I got the frame !
Now… more importantly I got some things that I did not have ! Even though the 453e I got last fall has most parts, it’s was missing :
- The Body ! and the motor hood
- The fuel tank
- the seat frame
- The cover for the chain.
I was pretty stoked to see a fuel tank.. then not so much cause it’s cracked..
Fixable ? I’ll try. If nothing else it’s a good template to make a steel one. The body like everything else needs repair.. I thought I was just buying some spare parts.. but I’m thinking this is a repairable Terra Jet..
All the terra jets are stored for the time being.. future projects when the mood strikes me.
