I'm speechless! Too bad it wasn't a straight up restoration. The work looks to be well done!

I see a over priced hack job....

It is a hack job, but a very nice one. Not nice enough for $4500, though....
I have to admit, it crossed my mind as a Farmall/International Harvester guy that a Bolens 1886 and an IH 1886 look a lot alike. Not that I would think of committing the sacrilege, but it did cross my mind.
I see I wasn't the only one, then!

Over $6000 Invested???
I see like $1500 maybe 2k if the engine was rebuilt.
The Stainless Dual exhaust and Stainless steering arms must of cost around $4000 if that's the case.Sheesh that's NUTS.

Depending on what he had to start with, and if he counts his labor as a part of that cost, I can see where that could be possible.
As for it being a 'hack' job, I don't think that the term hack is applicable.
I'd call it modified, and a danged nice one.

I Love the Mods but not the Paint Job and Decals.The Dual Stacks are cool looking and those Stainless steel Tie rods and tie rod ends are Awesome.Wish I had those rods on my tractors.I keep popping ball joints out because of rust.LOL all my stuff has a bit of rust.I don't mind it unless I have to replace something that rusted apart.
What's up with the Philips head Wood screws holding the head tins onto the Blower housing? lol

Yuk, Looks like some of it was painted by a brush when you zoom in!
The Phillips head screws holding the engine tin are limited edition and RARE!
