Thanks all! As stated, it is very much going to be a working tractor. I plan to use the heck out of it and in another 20 years time, do another restore.
Great restoration of a classic Bolens. Congratulations on seeing the project through without compromising. Enjoy your dream tractor!
Thank you, Brian! Every time I see it I can't believe that I finally have one.
What a beauty !! Great job !
That is a fantastic machine! I really enjoyed the pics. Just a thought about the steering wheel for you to consider if you haven't already. What about spraying it with truck bed liner? It's durable, has a bumpy finish and is paintable too so you could do it matte, satin or gloss.
Thanks BYT! You are definitely on to something. I had been thinking some sort of an "orange peel" type texture could be applied and then painted over. I like your idea of using bed liner.
Wow, just seeing that first pic dropped my jaw, literally. You guys did an amazing job!
Ah, thanks buddy!
Wow very nice !
Nicer than new !!!
They're only new once, but it certainly has a different vibe to it this go around.
Wonderful restoration. And you call this a working tractor and worried about a little soot on a the loader frame? Go get it dirty and put a scratch on it right off the bat and you will be able to use and enjoy all your hard dedicated work. Until then, you won't even want to start it up. Great job.
Ha Ha. Initially it will be difficult but once it begins getting dusty and the wear areas begin showing themselves like on the foot pedals, it won't be so bad.
That is one super job,lots of your time in it,you sure can tell,I really like the engine modification, very well done
