Well my girlfriend and I went to Portland Friday and came home with a whole truck full of handle bars. To be exact the boss picked up two more reel mowers to go with her collection. And I picked up a very nice bolens gardener from a member on here (gunstuff1000), a black hawk frame ,and a simplicity model m 1 with some awesome tires. Great bunch of stuff. The bolens starts every time on the first pull. And the two reel mowers run darn good too. Had a lot of fun. Saw a lot of interesting stuff. Met some really nice people. Good trip in all.

Is the red reel mower a Johnston?  I see a Jacobsen two stroke on it.

Great additions to the collection Bob, way to go. If you decide to replace those turfs in the 3rd picture, I'd sure be interested in them.

You and your girlfriend??? Better get a prenup, you don't want to be squabbling over those toys you both got.
