I found a Bolens 1054 this weekend that i purchased from a member on the site,Dwayne(Motobreeder) It so nice to meet the people you see on the site and share the same passion.He is a real nice guy and would like to do business with him again. His son is also a up and coming gt'er that fell in love with a Sears SS16 and was on it most of the time I was there.I also picked up a tiller from another place in my travels. The 1054 needs a paint job and a engine, but is in good shape. My plans for the 1054 is to keep it until I finish the 1225 witch is still in pieces in my shed. I have bought some parts for the 1225 from Jestin and waiting for the rest of the parts to start on it.

AH HA...the double-super-ultra-rare "Fred Flintstone Bolens" edition. :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

You need to put that rascal on eBay with a $40,000.00 price like the guy did with the "AJ Foyt Bolens" edition. :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth:

Seriously, not a bad deal at all.
