I'm not into 2 wheeled tractors but I think if I found those they would go home with me. Neat find.

Awsome old standards. I've seen a couple here lately on ebay, but they have been too far away. I would be afaid to get one and not be able to do anything with it. I'm pretty good on most engines, but not so sure of the ones that old. Great looking tractor.

Thanks for your concern. My problem is a physical one. If I operated one of those for more than a few minutes I wouldn't be able to walk back to the house. Setting down my garden still looks pretty inviting. :smile1:

Facinating!!! I'm surprised the handle bars are as good as they are. What is the engine?

You could have fooled me that the handles weren't original but then you can[t see the ends in the picture. The twist grips were also used on the Walsh Tractor Co tractors prior to Standard Walsh. They were also used on the wood handled Kinkades. On those they had one for throttle and one for clutch. For more history on this company see the Standard Engine Co thread that is pinned at the top of this forum.
