This passed weekend was LeSueurs swap meet. Had the privalige of meeting a couple members. Spent a bunch of time talking with dougt over a couple days and enjoyed every minute. Also cat358b came down for part of the day Sat. Great guys to talk with.

As usual it rained Fri. It seems there is always one day out of the three that it rains every year but Sat and Sun were nice. Sold a bunch of things and spent it all right back and then some. One has to rotate "inventory" every once in awhile.

First is model A Bolens. (Jerome you can ask cat about the good deal I got on it) It was one of those things I couldn't pass up.

Next is a DQ Bolens. Had fun getting that one on the trailer, what a beast of a machine.

Pick a seeder up.

And last (until I get everything off the trailer and truck) is a 12B Bolens.

Also pickup a whole slug of engines.

I still vote for keeping the copper tank on the A.  :thumbs:

 

Did you come to a decision on how the battle for a carb is going to go? Thumb wrestling? Rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock?

The tank will stay for now. It would look pretty sweet all polished up. I've found a couple guys with carbs but I'm thinking if they would be willing to part with one its going to cost me a arm, 3 legs and my first born.

Yes a NPR6 and a kick start N.

That DQ must have been the predecessor to the Huski Gardener. Two wheel steering?

The A is around 1923 and the DQ 1928.

Nate, it was good meeting you too. I can't believe Cat hasn't posted a pic of the price tag yet. He must not want to embarass you in front of Jerome. I still say you should have gotten at least 2 for that much! :poke:   :D

As for the carb, being as how you found a couple guys that have them and you only need one.......

The guy I got the A from put up a want ad looking for a carb and 3 guys asked him if he wanted to sell the engine. I think there's a few out there but everyone wants to keep them.

Yeah I think cat should post that pic of the price. Won't make no difference to me. It would probably help bring the market value down on some of these old walkers!
