Probably about two months ago or less on eBay was 5 auctions of Bolens parts everything was old stuff from the 40's and 50's painted the older Bolens green. The seller had some crazy prices on the stuff. I sent them an offer of what I thought was a fair price for everything and told them that if they decide later on to sell them for what I offered to let me know They contacted me after a couple weeks and no action on the listings and said they would accept my offer so it ended up taking over a month for them to work out shipping the parts to me. I received them thru Fastenal which took 2 weeks from when they dropped it off till delivered to my local store. There ended up being around 300lbs of parts in the lot. Everything is misc stuff but a few items that are really cool are a NOS brake kit for the versa-matic tractors and also a A-frame kit for the ridemaster. Also got a plow coulter for ridemaster which I just happen to need for a early style plow All and all I can't complain rather happy with what I got! image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

Good buys!

 

I tried making a deal with the seller as well but think shipping scared them

 

So glad it was you that got them and they will go to a good home, if your interested in selling those tubeframe mower deck chute guards I'll gladly buy them from you!

$150 for 300 pounds of stuff stuck on a pallet? You can't hardly drive very far for that price! Cool stuff!
