Make a low speed go-kart. I am assuming your engine is about 3.5 HP. It is probably vertical shaft. A horizontal shaft engine is easier to use on a couple of counts. The vertical shaft engine depends on the mower blade to serve part of the function of a flywheel and will not run without a flywheel of some sort. The flywheel could be some sort of balanced flat plate mounted to the engine shaft. Let the flat plate rest on a pulley with a rubber tire. Make the engine mount so the flywheel's center can slide inward or outward on top of the tire on the pulley for a transmission with infinite gear ratios. Beyond something to ride, the other applications for a mower engine are mostly practical, like powering a pump or a generator.
