This is so far from "Orginal" it can handy be called a Cub Cadet.

I think this is one if the tractors mowinman2 is selling for a friend. See below, I could be wrong.

I'm sure if it is the one mowinman could answer to the "original" part of the ad. Nice looking tractor, original or not. Thanks for posting.

The price is climbing closer to the original asking price. ($5,999) If I was the seller, I'd be feeling pretty good about the auction right now. 2.5 days to go. While not my cup of tea, the father/son team that built that certainly have eyes for details.

Superb craftsmanship!  It'll sell. There ARE some people that do enjoy building and buying nice machines like this. And it did start out as an original.

Is he planning to stiff EPAY? His pickup comment talks about avoiding fees.

Surprised Ebay hasn't noticed that yet.

It's not against ebay policy to pay at pick-up. He will still have to pay final value fees, but not paypal fees.

Pretty cool machine ! I wouldn't have any use for it but still appreciate the effort to make something that nice on the other hand if I was a Cub collector that might not set too well lol

I am not sure why he is calling them restored. Restored to me is put back just the way it rolled off the show room floor. I would sooner say that they are all refurbished. Have to give the father and son credit because they did a fantastic job on them.

Pretty tractor for sure, kudos to them for their work. Not my cup of tea though and undoubtedly not worth that much in my mind. Will certainly never recoup the investment put into it.
