The guy down the road about a mile from us stoped by dads shop today he is big into the Gibson tractors and oddball stuff. Dad was showing him pics of the Bolens stuff and when dad showed off the pic of the Ridemaster he stoped my dad and said he has one himself! We know this guy for years and he knew we were into the Bolens but he must of never spoke up or forgot about it. I am going to stop by his place after work tomorrow and see more about the Ridemaster.

I have no idea how I could of not smelled it being less then a min drive from here. :)

That's cool! You probably just never noticed because of all the other stuff around!

Better go see your Doctor, get that sniffer checked out.

Good luck, hopefully another RM added to the herd.

It's a small world isn't it? I think it's great that a fellow with a mutual interest is so close by. Hopefully you can exchange great information.

Well I stoped after work and talked to him he was going to tell my dad as soon as he saw him that he said wrong he no longer has it he sold it last fall, he has alot of stuff and he forgot it was gone. But on the plus side he showed me around telling me storys on all his tractors. He has one of every Gibson mod ever made he does have a D for sell if anyone is looking for one let me know. The real oddball was the mayrath he had first time I ever seen one up close. Great guy, had a good time talking to him, I liked the looks of the bigger Gibson he had.

Jerome, sorry to hear it's already gone, but at least you got a free tour.
