It looks interesting. That is reputed to be one of the best tube frames. I lived near there for 20 years. Good Luck, Rick

Hope he sees the reality or else it will sit a long time.

I sent him a email stating that 250 for a not running tractor that could potentially need a motor is a little overkill.

Just a little overpriced, more like $ 100 if that, i hope you get it if you don't mind basket case tractors.

After taking another look,

 

Be aware that the ignition module is not on the shroud!

If that is broken or missing your talking at least $175 to replace and fix the ignition system.

This tractor just looks like a nightmare to me..... If it were me I'd wait to find a complete one and avoid the headaches brought on by the previous owner......

I know it's just so hard to find a hydro tubeframe in this area at all :wallbanging: Actually if you look in that pic just to the right above the generator you can see the module the bolts for the front cover are out he must have had it off.
