I have seen this on CL for over a month now and the guy keeps renewing the ad so that it goes to the top which I've done myself with items I'm selling. Now it has been on ebay for a few days with zero bids......I'm curious as to why no one is even trying....I can't say that it would be my first pick but I guess you would think someone would be able to use it....

I guess no one wants to pay $400 for it. Not a bad price if it runs as good as he says.

He's trying to get a GT price for a LT (IMO). Sounds like it might be abit "cobbled" with the shifter area being cut up. With better pics the price maybe could be justified.

the market is flooded with 90's models LT's... plain and simple. I could buy $150-$200 LTs all day long... may not have a snow blade weights or chains but all of that could easily be had for another couple hundred. Heck if you look/ask around people will give you these old mowers. I had two given to me in one day. One needed a solenoid and one needed a battery.

I hear that it's the same issue around my area.....just thin tin is what I call em....people realize they'd rather jus go buy a new one.....if they'd buy an older GT worth investing money into then they might have somethin

I agree however, if you can't do the work yourself and have to pay someone to wrench on a GT, one could sink a small fortune into it.
That being said, I think you have hit the nail on the head.
