Im a slow worker, but im still working on the 1050. The decals from Sams Bolens need to be installed. The rebuilt driveshaft from tubeframes.com went in nice, and the red paint laid down nicely. I decided to have the white painted professionally so I took the hood, fender pan, wheel, and dash to a local body shop. Im working on cleaning up the tra-10d so I can get that painted and put back in. Im hoping to have it all done before the end on the year.

Great work on the tractor, but wondering about those classic cycles in the background. Those are worth good $'s today. The Honda "Minitrail" & the CT70 are definitely collectable. And that KZ...what can I say...beautiful! Did you restore them all? Well, the CT70 looks original, but in superb shape! You do some good work my friend! :yelclap::yelclap::yelclap:

The trail 50 was a complete retso about 3-4 years ago. The 70 was a worn down cleaned and put back together, its very original with minimal repaint of small parts
The Kz650 is all original except tires and I drive it alot in nice weather.

Thanks for all the nice compliments I will keep you posted
