    What on earth would you be shooting with a (double) barrel shotgun from that height? My guess is the recoil kicked him ass-over-tea-kettle into the trees (since he's not aligned properly with the support legs).

    Meh...you can use a shotgun for just about anything. But no one yet has commented that once the contraption retracts he has a really kickass passenger seat.

    The other question is: how does he climb up there (with a loaded weapon) without tipping the whole mess over? Unless that telescoping pole is hydraulic, in which case I'd be real interested in how it's powered. :scratch

    It would be a kickass passenger seat if it weren't retracted. Just watch for power lines and low bridges. :lol3

    The picture is either photoshopped or depicts something that appears to be mounted on but is actually mounted behind the Lambretta D/LD...

    WHat looks to be a double barreled shotgun is a three barreled 'Drilling" common to Europe. Two shotgun barrels and a rifle underneath. Makes a heavy weapon, but popular where civilian gun ownership is restrictive and huniting opportunities are for those who can pay $$$. I really doubt this is photoshop, looks real. Late 1950's-1960's

    No it would take 2 hours plus to photoshop something like this. Europe and hunting it wouldn't shock me that someone made a one off stand. Rather then carrie a tree stand someone made one.

    Sure it might be photoshopped, but your conclusion from that picture is exactly opposite mine. That's a fairly hefty frame with suspension and cross members right below the supposed stand and the scooter you picture is built to seat 2 people. So a few pounds of metal, just one person and those extra support legs seem entirely reasonable to me.

    Actually, it looks to me like the seat post has 2 hydraulics of some sort. Then there are 3 legs to support it.

    So maybe he can lower the seat and raise it when he's in it somehow?

    It is a pretty strange pic though!

    Perhaps not hydraulics but a hand crank somewhere off camera? Looks interesting - I lived in the country too long not to be surprised by some of the inventions hunters came up with. I've seen deer stands made of some weird things, a scooter wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility.

    Could there be a screw assembly like Old Jacks or Piano Stool to raise the seat?
