Mom sold the home place and moved to an assisted living home. I found Dads old David Bradley walk behind sitting in the corner of the barn. He had bought it new in 1951. It had been sitting neglected and forgotten for decades in the dirt.
I hauled it home and took inventory....mostly there, rotten tires, no engine. The engine had been taken off and used for a go cart when I was a kid!
I went to some tractor swap meets and found a correct replacement engine and made a good deal on some knobby tires.
Tinker a bit , scrape and sand, scrape and sand , then paint...and tinker some more.
At last it was done.
I took it to the the apartment where Mom was living and drove it around the building, the look on her face was priceless.
And so it began...I needed another project, then another....
It 's been a while since i posted this, but here is a photo of Dads db after I fixed it up.
sorry, dont know how to enlarge it.
