All of you Bolens owner/operators, can you give me a consensus of which Bolens is the best styled? I would like to know for an art project.

For the tube frames, the G11 with the shaded color decals:

For the Large Frames, the HT23, Ht20D or HDT1000 with the green decals.

The 1886 would be a close 2nd to the HT23.

I like the Ride-A-Matic too, but then I like just about any tractor with a steel pan seat!

I have an H16 I like a lot but artistically I agree with Bolens1000 the early Ride A Matics.

We ,us  cant pick one style . thats like picking one of our kids over the other one . It cant be done thats what make bolens so special .Bolens are not  just one plane simple color like others . ................ O k  here we go,   that's a point. or two.

Since I posted before you made that statement, and so superaben doesn't have to, I will post what he would say in this situation:

 

"You're going to have to be more specific."

If it is for an abstract art project there is only one choice and it would be this Ride-a-Matic:
