Its very good looking 1959 with fenders. The drives sistem on the ride a matic is based off the ridemaster, but its still a tricky thing to work I yet to get my ride a matic working because the drive is froze up so I am not much help.
Did it roll for you guys? There is a pin like the tube frames have but it under the left side of the rear end.
That is funny that you mention the rolling, it rolled nice and easy for us and it was in neutral when we were trying to get it running and when we were ready to take it for it's first test run it wouldn't go anywhere. I guess from having the other Bolens it made it easier to figure out what it was and I found the pin on the side of the sprocket
