OK, I looked at the pics, and even went to 400% on the browser size and I didn't see anything that says 'repaint' to me.

 

Just what do you see that I don't?

Only thing I don't like is it has that darn SS ignition.

Look at the decals guys....

The rims have been painted to.   The rims on the green bolens are even painted!

Pics are not the best quality for me to say 100% but for a white Tubeframe that hood and Transmission looks incredibly clean for 40+ years of use especially with use of a deck.

The paint can on the seat and white paint caps laying there sure look suspicious LOL

The white also looks "Too white" from what they were originally

 

 

The guy had good taste though, All Bolens equipment!

 

That walkbehind blower is worth buying as well if someone goes.

Hate to say it but it has been repainted. The 1054 did not come out white. and the hood decals have been replaced. But still Is a nice clean looking unit.

Your right.  I crossed lines checking.  My mistake.  They had the 10 hp Wisconsin.
