I think the price would be tolerable if the restore was actually complete.

... restoration is not complete but very close. Just needs some wiring and little odds and ends. Comes with most parts to finish the tractor. ...

 

 

I read that as: "There are critical parts I just can't find, but if you want to try, fill your boots."

Might be a bit off subject, but where would a guy get tractor tread front tire that size?  I'm suspecting that they are 4.80 x 8?

 

I suspect he ran out of patience....or knows just enough about electrical to be dangerous and didn't want to melt any wires that would require him taking things apart :)

Seeing that it needs wiring work, I assume it doesn't run.  Can't even know if the engine is any good and it makes it tougher to tell if the gear box is sound.

Miller tire carries R1's in that size.

Knowing the resto, he has done a top-notch job.  Frankly, I think far too much $$ was spent on automotive paint, new chrome plating, etc, and he seems to be trying to get his $$ back....resto's just don't get you your money back, but I can't knock a guy for tryin :rolling:
