Thanks for taking the time do put this together - it must have been a lot of hard work.  A lot of great information for Bolens enthusiasts that is hard to come by. 

nice work

Thanks now i know i have1969 1050 Bolens red is cross between red-orange

Thanks now i know ihave a1969 1050 Bolens is a red-orange not red

What a great read! Well written, and I learned a bunch. Thanks!

Thank you for the fantastic article.  I just took delivery yesterday of a model 1453.  Nearest I can figure from the article is that it is a G14 built from 1973 - 1978.  That in itself helps a lot as I haven't been able to read the serial number.

Thank you Brian for this very informative article.

I was eager to read on my Husky 1886 but didnt find it. is there a reason?

I restored my G10 but when i got the decals they only had the 76-78 style and mine is a 73 but im fine with it. Thanks for the great article. 

As a new owner of a tube frame (1253-01), I appreciate the history of the series!  Thanks!  Is there a similar article existing or in the works for the large frames?

Jim

neat good bit of bolens history, i have read this many times
