G'day Dandare ,

The first one is a Rapier rotary mower introduced in the mid-1950s. It was originally powered by a Vincent two-stroke engine.

The second one is home made ,although I see a lot of people on other sites say it's an mower made by Indian motorcycles but
that is incorrect, it's just a DIY mower.

Whatever they are, they're extremely old.
A Victa Vortex looks 50 years newer and better styled.


Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!

Yes the Indian mock up one has been around for a long time I remember seeing it years ago
