I don't pretend to know that much about Bolens, therefore I'm not positive on the "worth" of this but I do know that in any other brand, getting all of this would be considered a good deal around my area........

The first Tube Frame was the 600 built in 1962.

The 800s were built from 1963-1965.

1978 was the last year that they were produced. There were two models that year. The G14 and the last new model, the G11.

Bolens1000 had a nice write up in the stickies on the Tube Frames, but he's busy re-doing it. Keep an eye out for when it comes back.
