hi to all, new member here. this is a great site, i'm glad i found it. i've been looking around and found a lot of information for my bolens and my wheel hosre's. my problem is the idenifacation tag is not readable.

i was wondering if someone could help me with the model no.i believe it's a 1958, it has the cast iron grille,

i would like download the manual for it if its available. any help would be appreiciated. i can take more pics if needed, ive also included a video link. it's a little long so just skip to  3:40.

The one in the pic is either a K160 or K161 , someone may have swapped ID tags if thats what it says.....K90/91 is alot smaller than that

Welcome! Nice Rideamatic, like Brian said its a 1958. Originally it would have had a K160.

Somewhere around here there a restoration thread from mine.
