I might be able to get a 1928 viking complete with 3 attachments. Not currently running and unrestored.
Anybody got photo or info on these. How uncommon are they?

Is it a Twin or Single? There are a few photos on Google and Smokestak.

This tractor has the wrong sheetmetal on it but he basic tractor is right. Usually the long shift handle is broke off. There was a reverser that was an option. These are probably the hardest to find of the vikings.

I don't think they made the single that early. This tractor should be a model B.

Why is that something to be afraid of?

I really don't see the problem here.

I am sucker for these old tractors. In the last 6 months I picked up 5 different walk behinds all free from different people. People don't want them.
I parted out all the incomplete ones. Kept the david bradley since I got suburban too. Might keep the planet jr.

Walking is good for you!  And they take up less space!
