The Leopard was hauled from Dayton, OH to Baltimore, OH
Later that evening a tire was replaced and a 12 volt accessory battery was purchased.
The vehicle that had sat in a field for 2 years without charging was running again!
Batteries in rear (original configuration before updating)
This vehicle was driven on the road for several months before the decision was
made to tear into the 25 year old control assembly and update the speed controller, etc.

brand new paint job and rare mags.
Congratulations to the owner of this vehicle!
