Yeah thats an office chair LOL
I cant see him getting that much for it. The engine/seat/and paint are not original.
Also cutting holes in the hood and "modifying" the frame doesn't sound too good either LOL

Wow I think he needs to ask more for it. J/K

Who going to bust his bubble and tell him it’s not worth half of the starting bid?

How did he get that virtical shaft motor to work. Must have changed the rear end too. And no bids yet. Big Surprise!

These little Bolens were the "more affordable" tractors that they made available to people with smaller yards. They still were a workhorse even though they were small

Now THAT's funny! Wouldn't touch that one with a 10-foot pole. Maybe he'll find a sucker looking for a "collector's item". HA HA HA
