Heck, I think it is really nice!  Improved all the way around and made much more modern and easier to work I bet. I give it the "Thumbs Up" here.  It's a Custom tractor, Unique and not just Another Bolens, same  as everyone else's.

It's not for me, but it looks like it was nicely detailed with good workmanship.

 

For the $1200 asking price, more pics would be nice.  ....I'm curious what is on the back end.

That Bolens looks great!  I think I will put racing slicks and headers with drag pipes on my 318 now!   :D

Looks like someone put quite a bit of effort in, and has some pretty fair skills.

Okay been working 10 hrs days , outside no shade, maybe affecting my judgement.. but... I like it , kinda how I felt about that four cylinder 1886 hot rod in WI posted on here awhile back ,intrigued by them, this one close enough to have a look-see , if that 86 was closer ..

You know, I have to admire the workmanship. Gotta say I like it also. Who ever did it put some thought and effort in to it and it turned out pretty darned nice.
