I offered $150 for it he said 300 has a low as he would go. It looked like it had a good deck. It needed a seat bad grill and headlight bezel needed love as well as the hood the front of it need repaired. He said it had a different motor in it was either a kohler 16 hp or 18. I just felt like it was worth less than 300. I really felt like he just wanted it gone once he said he was wondering what it weighted cause of scrap value.
Going To Look At A 140-H3 Tommarow Whats A Good Price?

That is a classic pressure technique. If someone doesn't buy it, I'll scrap it out.
While it certainly could be parted out for more than you offered, the fact is, the owner didn't part it out already.
Honestly, $300 wasn't terrible, but I've seen a few pretty nice running unrestored machines for below $900.

Well $150 would be a great deal... If he doesn't take your offer would you share the the guys contact info (through PM of course), I might be interested.
