Marie and I were out riding around at the Buckley show on Saturday.
Heading back to our spot, we came around the end of one of the rows of tractors and there was the little crawler setting along side my Agricat.
Man was I surprised .....
I knew that Jerome was coming to the show and I thought he was bringing a Ridemaster with him.
I had no idea that he was even working on the crawler.

The photos don't do it justice. You really have to see it in person. It is a absolutely beautifull restoration.
I am really glad that I sold this to Jerome instead of some stranger on ebay..
