That must be a restored sled. Untouched ones don't look that good. Bolens sure did make a lot of different stuff!

   those a pretty hard to come by, and bring good money when you find them.  I have seen two or three at different shows but never one for sale, they were made in the late 60's to mid 70's.  I to would like to have one just to say it was mine
