Back on Nov. 21st I posted pics of the B206 and B207 that I purchased. Yesterday we dug the B207 out from behind 5 other tractors and a bunch of patio furniture in my friends fathers basement. It is now home with me and awaiting some TLC to get it going and mowing.

Looks to be in really good condition for it's age. The seat covers and arm rests didn't make out as well as the rest of the tractor though. Hope the center pivot has been taken care of through the years.

I believe you'll have fun with the little guy Dave. My B-207E is my second favorite, behind my Big Ten.

Nice looking tractor. As someone who isn't familiar with those AC's I just noticed the centre pivot! Does the front axle still pivot in these? That must be a unique feature in a LT.

Looks like its in decent shape! I bet those hubcaps will polish up really nice!

Brian, the center pivot is a cool feature. My simplicity broadmoor does that. The front axle does not pivot, on my broadmoor, I assume this is the same set-up.

Brian and Ryan, it's the same setup as the early Broadmoors (front axle welded to the frame).

I have 2 B207s. One is a flat hood and the other has a hood like yours. I always wondered what the E stood for in B207E. People say electric start but my B207 like yours has a Starters generator.

Just started my B207 restoration just down the road a ways from you. Thankfully found the manual on this site for all the belt sizes.
