Can someone provide me with pictures and if possible measurements of the Original Ridemaster decals?

After about an hour of looking at various Ridemasters online I'm seeing a difference in text on some of the replicated ones. I'd like to get the set as accurate as possible so we no longer have to rely on different people to make the decals which often can lead to variations in material and craftsmanship.

 

Still need pics/measurements of the following:

 

-"Ridemaster" side decal

 

-Tank Decal

 

-Calcium Decals (Both Front and Back)

 

-Wisconsin Air cleaner Decal

I've got some Wisconsin decals on my engines.  I imagine it was a sticker provided by the air cleaner producer, someone like Donaldson.  Do you know about what it should look like, Brian?

So no one wants to help a Bolens guy out?

It only takes a few minutes to measure and snap a picture! :poke:

Sorry Brian, I can't help. I think most of the Ridemasters in my area have somehow ended up at Jerome's!

Along with a lot of other Bolens stuff...

I got the tank and "Ridemaster" decals for my Ridemasters from Hank Watkins in Wisconsin.

The wheel, implement, tank and name decals are also available on ebay.

Thanks Ray!

What I really would like is the measurements such as approx height of the "Ridemaster" letters and total length of the decal

Would like the OD of the tank decal as well.

 

I know this was true for the walkbehinds but I believe the Rim decals are supposed to be printed on clear background not yellow.

Can anyone else confirm this?

All of my tractors are down at my sons place in Indiana so I can't help you with any dimensions.

The wheel decals on my unrestored Ridemaster look like they are printed on a yellow background.

Quality wise or the Graphics are wrong?

Thanks for the heads up on this!

 

This is why I want to get a full set made up by a guy I have worked with for years and sells good products!
