I saw this pop up and figured bidding would take off, yet with only 2 days left, no one has posted the opening bid of $225!  This is a bang up deal, in my opinion, and I'd be freighting it, if I weren't eyeball deep in recent acquisitions already.  Nice straight machine, with all the goodies:

OEM Guide Lights - three @ $70+ each ($210)

OEM light brackets - ($30)

Goodyear Ags - ($125)

Hydraulic lift - ($275)

nice 48" deck - ($75)

hubcaps, should clean up ok - ($100)

New battery - ($40+)

triribs - ($100)

36" tiller, ok shape - ($100, more with pto pulleys)

 

I see a conservative, $1000+ in accessories, plus a 12hp tractor that runs.  The listing mentions bad BGB, and if a guy wanted this tractor as a worker, they can be found under $100.  If he wanted to part it, the engine is another $200, roller, maybe another $50-75.  This is a dream machine for someone starting with their first Simplicity, or for the lifelong collector who wants/needs a pile of accessories.  A+ candidate for restoration too.  $225 is an embarrassingly low price, yet it seems each day folks are asking about the value of $300-500 rusty-rollers with no perks.  There is a Fastenal 24 miles from where this is listed.  I am awaiting a reply on the seller's willingness to take it there.
