Isn't that what they call all original?

Yeah, that's been there for awhile now.

 

I pretty much ignore ads like that.

 

There seems to be some sort of competition on eBay these days to see who an ask the most outrageous prices for Bolens stuff.

 

ETA:

 

If you really want a GK you can get 2 complete ones, plus one for parts for less than a 1/3 of that that clown is asking for that 'thing'.

Even though it's a shame to do that to a vintage Bolens, I have to admit it's a nice looking custom job none the less and probably represented a large investment of time and $.

I reckon it is a 'one of kind'. The buyer will most likely be a guy whos never even heard of Bolens and just wants a cool ATV.
