$250 is a good price for a 100 with fenders on it.  On a 100 my top end on one that is unrestored would be 400 with the options you stated on it.  They built 39,102 of them and there is still a LOT of them out there even though many have found their way to the scrapper or have been modified into pullers.  A 1200 will mow WORLDS nicer than a 100 will and they are not as common as a 100 is.  They have a better designed deck, a more appropriate second gear for mowing and are easier to service with the removable tunnel cover.  A 100 is probably the #2 tractor in production numbers right after the Original who's production number is 64,867 tractors.  Most of the tractors production figures topped out around 25,000 or so.  Some were much less like the 800 with 2,345 tractors, the 169 with 4,005, the 126 with 5,247 or the 73 with 7,678 tractors built.

 

We own all of these but the 169 and the 1200.  I once had a 1450 that I started to rebuild but then traded for my 36A snowthrower and some cash.  I miss that tractor and now wish I had it back!  It mowed NICE!

 

A pic of my 100 ready for snow duty.

Well it looks likeI was off on the production numbers, but i knew these 100 were pretty collectable

Alex , see if the IH serial number tag on the 800 is intact , I have a 800 here that got one on it that dented , creased right in the middle from a previous owners . The guy must have kicked it or at least somethings hit it hard in the past .

See if he'll part with it , if  he's going to make a puller out of it he doesn't need the IH serial tag ....LOL

You have to drive the 2 rivets out from the inside of the frame .....that aluminum tag is really easy to mess up .

 

 

I just sold a really nice 1200 two weeks ago for less than the one you just picked up , and I'm close to you .

I have a restored 1200.  Before it was restored I mowed the lawn with it a few times.

Honestly, it laid down the smoothest cut of any cub we have.

 

We have more than 500 in our though, probably near 1500.00 after the restoration.  Oh well, we don't re-do them for resale!

Mine cuts amazingly too! it just needs blades sharpened. I don't plan on restoring it, but i want to repaint the rear end because its scraped up a bit. I also want to paint the metal seat pan and the step plates.

My dad cuts with an all orginal 128. Its a true survior. It cuts for 2 hours every week in the summer. He has had it for 20 years. The guy before him owned it since new.

No reason to restore your every week mower.

I need to get some pictures of the restorations we have done.
