Before his passing 13 years ago my father had bought and restored a Shaw R 12-T and a small Shaw 2-wheeled walk behind.
The family farm is in Ohio and i live in Connecticut, so distance is a factor for me. For years i had planned to bring the Shaw east but as time has passed that becomes less likely, i collect hit&miss engines and don't have enough time for them. Since i'm not going to take it the family would like part with it for a fair and reasonable price.
I'm guessing the R 12-T has been in the family for about 20 years, my Dad thought it was a 1937 or a 39, it was running when last parked in the equipment shed about 10 years ago. The rear tires are like new as my father had replaced them when he bought it, the front are dry rotted and shot. When cold it took a 10-20 seconds with the clutch in to change gears without making noise. My Dad had it painted green, probably not an original Shaw color, but it looks nice.
The walk behind has a small briggs engine on it and appears to be in original condition. The tires are shot but the rest of it looks nice. It too has been stored inside, probably all of it's life.
So i'm looking for advice on how to advertise, price it, etc. I can get pictures for them as needed. My brother and 2 brother-in-laws are always available to show the machines to anyone interested. I just happen to be more internet savvy than the 3 of them.
I hope i'm not breaking any Forum rules by asking these questions.
Thanks in advance,
