Wrong engine, wrong decals, and there isn't an interlock switch that's under a cover between the PTO lever and parking brake lever.

ETA: Wrong hood as well, as it lacks the 'cutout' on the left side.

Looks like someone painted the hood/fenders and made up some homemade decals.
I agree though that they are not that rare like we first thought.

lol I bet it's a G9 with a replacement 11hp Briggs.And some one had a set of custom decals made up for it.I've seen quite a few people do that in the past.Add a bigger engine and have Decals made up to reflect the engine size.

Still, even if it isn't a G11, the G9 isn't all that common, plus it's interesting because it doesn't follow the normal Bolens naming scheme.

By all rights it should have been the G8 since it has the 8 Hp Brigs, but Bolens had already used that for the 813 04-08.
