Just to throw my $0.02 in here, but it seems to me that Large Frame Bolens' go for big bucks, even if they are in less than ideal original and/or working condition. So yes, basically this one comes with NO attachments as that deck looks hokey as $#@& and I'm assuming you will pitch that as soon as you get it (if you actually end up getting it). However, even as just the tractor, assuming the engine runs and the Hydro works well, I'm thinking $150-$200 isn't too bad of a deal for it. What does anyone else think about it? I mean, I've seen Large Frames on eBay and Craigslist go for a lot more (even into the $1,000 range without much in the way of attachments...). Granted, this one has been repainted and is missing the proper decals and deck and it is a bit of a challenge to even confirm which model it is unless you can find the model tag on the frame (and it hasn't been painted over or anything...)
But it is up to you in the end to decide what you want to pay for it and if it is worth it to you to try and properly restore it or at least get the correct deck for it to get it working...
(If it were a lot closer to me though and I had the money, I might be tempted to buy it... )
