Thats is one interesting unit. I particularly like the chain drive steering and three belt engine drive. How about the foot pegs?

What would be the correct engine? What else do you know about them Wilberj? Jack

wilberj left us with a teaser didn't he? LOL

I really like the ridemasters. I like the box setup that they put on the back too.

The original engine would be a wisconsin. a AKS or AKN engine model. I think they switched to AKN's in 1950.

I am not familiar with that show. Please share some information about it. There is a rather large show in Monroe this weekend that I plan to attend. I will take some pictures and attach them here. Might need to purchase an extra memory chip for the camera. Jack

They sure are neat looking machines. I've got most of one sitting in my project pile; Maybe someday it will look that sharp. Maybe...

Ok, I just found the Bolens guys! Picked up a Ridemaster yesterday with the intention of restoring. Can you give me any good source(s) for parts/information? This is my first Bolens-- model 35ab01, sn P 1560.
