Got a new toy tonight and this time it is my first RJ! This little tractor is in need of a lot of tlc and needs an original seat, gas tank, and belt shield. I almost passed on it but at $125 he almost made me buy it. If anyone has leads on any parts I'd greatly appreciate it!

   Nice, I have one and it is a ton of fun.  keep an eye on ebay and cl I have seen parts for these pop up from time to time, expect to pay around $60 for the belt guard.

If you PM me some contact info, I will give it to a guy who may have some of those parts.
He keeps saying he has to get rid of the stuff he has

Took some more pictures tonight after I took this to see my great uncle. He's a pretty die hard wheel horse guy but he's never seen an RJ in person. I think I need to take him to arendtsville lol
