Repurposed Tractor Seat

Well, technically, not a tractor but a horse drawn threshing machine.  But I have been eyeing it for the last 30 years.  Whenever I have mentioned it, J would say the bolts were too rusty and we would need something to cut it off.  So the last time I was over there, I checked it again, and discovered that the wood and bit of metal it was attached to were rotten and I just tore it off. 
 Next came figuring out how to mount it on something.
 I was cleaning out a barn we are trying to get torn down (for the last 5 years) and saw this tire rim.
Worked prefect if you don't want to actually sit down.   It is just not quite heavy enough with the angle of the seat.  Maybe if I bury it or stake it to the ground somehow.  Now I have to find a place to put it.

Very cool seat :)

I will be interested to see how you solve the balance issue.
