I know very little about the value of Bolens, but that looks like a strong start. The photos have some other interesting units in the background, might indicate a fairly knowledgeable seller.

Oh, that's my ad. I realize now that I should have listed it in the classifieds here too, although I guess I don't need to if it's already in this section. Sorry, guys. I'm fairly new to this site.

The tractor is, what I would consider to be, a very strong starting point for a restoration. I know it has engine issues, but those old Wisconsin motors are fairly easy to come by (as far as these things go). It starts and runs fine, but it's just that crack in the crankcase. I don't really want to sell it, but we just had a fairly major expense come up so I wanted to sell it to help out with that, and plus I can use the space anyway. My tiny garage is getting cramped, and the Ridemaster isn't that small.

Sure. Not a problem at all. The tractor is Type #: 35AB02, and the Serial # is R 4954. I also have a friend or two who have Ridemasters as well. Would you like me to get their numbers as well so that they can also be added to your list? Thanks, and have a great day.

Good news: I don't have to sell my Ridemaster anymore, at least for now. I was able to buy and sell a few things to raise the funds I needed to do what I needed. So, for now the Ridemaster stays at my place. I'll fix the motor and give it a much deserved paint job. I may still end up selling it yet this summer due to space issues. I'll know better once I get my Gibson SD back together, which I'm working on right now. Thanks.
