I have a model J. The one wheel simplicity garden tractor was made is 1939 I believe. It was known as a Model A or a culti-cutter. It looks like Simplicity built them for Montgomery Ward and also make a few of their own to sell under the Simplicity name. It was red in color not orange. Here are photos of another one that I have. It is pretty cool! I have not restored it yet. Those are usually my winter projects... Take a look at this one I have. Let me know if you guys know how rare they are. I have been around Simplicity walk behinds for years, and never knew they made a one wheel until I saw this one a month ago.

See my New post for photos. Since I was a new member it would not let me add photos to my first post. See new post titled Simplicity one wheel post 2.

Attached are more photos of the other One wheel Simplicity tractor I have. What can you guys tell me about them? How rare are they? What are they worth? I know it is difficult to find one with the original fender on it. This one came with the Briggs you see and the original Lauson motor. I guess most people pulled the Lauson off and switched motors with something more powerful Luckily I have the Lauson engine too!
Let me know what you think.

I think you are a Simplicity walk behind collector, is that a model VA or Special i see in the back ground ??
I also think you made off with a sweet find along with the Lauson engine
