Earlier this summer I picked up a 1053 tractor for parts. It still has what appears to be the original seat and a badly faded lower seat cushion assembly. All that is left of the back cushion is the metal backing which is badly rusted. I checked the excellent Tube Frame Article that Bolens 1000 did and found a picture of an original 1053 (borrowed it for this post - hope he doesn't mind) and it shows the seat had "BOLENS" embossed in the back cushion. Wonder if someone still has the same seat with a decent back cushion and if so would they be kind enough to post a good picture of it as well as be able to tell me how wide and tall the "BOLENS" lettering is. I am assuming that the padding and cover were glued onto what is left of my metal back piece and that the padding on the back piece was 1-1/2" thick as well.
Found this material online which appears to be similar in colour - http://www.jtsoutdoo...&scBrand=0=
Thanks in advance for the help.
