1976 John Deere Cyclone 340

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

After pounding the body straight again and doing some major reconstruction on the hood, I had every intention of modifying it to look very different.

What motivated you to start your project?

My brother in-law bought 4 machines, 3 liquifires and this cyclone for $800 package deal. This one was put on the backburner. The motor had a melted piston and had some pretty bad front end damage. I got 2 of the 3 liquifires running using the 3 as a parts machine. I kept this on for myself as payment for the work on the other 2. I already envisioned a chopper style sled, given it was in such bad shape, I had no fear about cutting into it and doing something different.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the sled?

Dual straight pipes and the old JD tractor seat.
