I HAVE POSTED 2 PICTURES TAKEN IN THE LATE 1950S AND NEED HELP IN DETERMINING WHAT MAKE AND MODEL MACHINE IT IS. I BELIEVE ITS A DAVID BRADLEY, AS YOU CAN SEE THERE IS A LARGE PULLEY ON THE LEFT SIDE AND THE GAS TANK RUNS FRONT TO BACK, NOT SIDE TO SIDE. ANYBODY HAVE ANY IDEAS AND IS THERE ONE OUT THERE FOR SALE. THANKS...

looks to be one of the Speedx models. Your pictures are not the greatest in being able to pick out a lot of detail.

I tried to improve the photos, but if you can rescan them, it would help greatly.

after looking at the improved picture, it looks more like a Gardenaid, just going by the large belt cover on the right side.

I think i would go with either Garden Aid or a Bready. Both were similar but the Garden Aid had a wood engagement handle and the Bready was steel.
