As I understand it, this is supposed to be a pretty rare model of the CC. You CC guys would know about the pricing as I'm a "Bolens Guy".

Yes the 86 model is a bit hard to find if your lucky. 500$ seems a bit high though I would talk to him to see how low he would be willing to go.

The cub 800 is the rarest cub with around 2400 units made then the 169 is the second rarest .
The 86 I believe is in the top 5 of the rarest , I'll have to check .
$500 isn't a great price , but if its been recently rebuilt as he states and needs no work and you can hop on and mow , its a fair price .

OK , did a little checking and they made 8489 model 86 cubs and its the 5th rarest model made .
I haven't seen that many 86's and believe the rarity is because of it only being 8 hp and many people were buying the bigger 12 and 14 hp models that were available .

I would love to have this GT.$500 isn't a bad price for a fairly rare GT in decent condition.I've spent more than $500 in parts for my 127 or 129 or 149.The 127 and 129 needed engine rebuilds and the 149 needed alot of metal body parts and hydro parts.
They're was only 4,005 169s and less than 3,000 model 800s made.I can't get an exact figure on the number of 800s.Some ppl say 2400 some say upwards of 3200+.
I have to check the ###s on my 169 but I think it's a high number (sub 3500+) cub.I paid $100 for it but that was from a scrap yard.He had no idea what it was worth and I'm glad lol.There's a 169 on Ebay and he's asking $850 for it.But I thought the 149 and 169 had Hydro lift as standard equipment.His 169 has Manual lift.
I wonder how many of the rare CCs are out there yet?I know that I've seen more than a few 86s,800s and 169s get parted out on Ebay.I'm betting the numbers are getting pretty low.

I bought an 800, it is not used other than to ride the grandchildren around!!
And to make people ask questions!!

A good number of the 169's did have manual lift, something about IH not having hydro lifts, and orffered to upgrade later.
But I may be wrong on that.
Thats the story I always heard about the manual lift 169's .
My 169 was originally manual lift , but I put a hydrolift off a 149 on it .
800's and 169's usually bring a little more because of there rarity .
I personally own both models , and for some strange reason have come across a lot more 800's than 169's .
I belong to a cub site and the normally accepted production numbers for the rarest units are :

The Numbers on my 169 are 2050048U523464 I have no idea what the numbers mean but there they are.Does that make it #205 or 2050 off of the production line?Or am I wrong? I have no idea.
Mine has factory Hydro lift.Maybe they ran out because of the 149 having Hydro lift as standard?They did made quite a few 149s.I wish they would of made a gear drive 16hp CC 168.Those specs would of made it a factory pulling tractor for sure.
I like how quite the original muffler is on it.It has the original muffler that looks like a big coffee can on it.It's so quite yet very very powerful.She has 628 hours on the still working meter.The tins need a bit of work,rear fenders bent and hood hinge cracked again.I replaced the original broken hood hinge with a stainless one but it cracked within a couple weeks.
