Pretty straight 1000, (seat) sent him a note it's not a hydro, but I'm pretty sure I see the handle of an hydraulic lift and the lift cylinder , mentions reasonable offer... like to see it up close

It's clean but 1200 is way too much IMO, did they put a 1050 seat on the fiberglass pan?

Looks nice but the price with the missing pulley, seems about $400 north of reality.

$400 or less is ball park for those.

Asking price is to high for sure,but is a very clean tractor for the age,couple things not right,but was only made one year,I'm guessing he means the u-joint missing for connecting the blower,easy find for about $25.00,the hydraulic lifts alone usually go for a couple hundred dollars,or better,attachments are in very nice shape

4,000 to 5,000   Bolens 1000 were made in 1965.

For a tractor only made 1 year and in that shape with those nice attachments $400.00 would be a steal (IMO)

I'd suggested to him to amend his initial post maybe add a few more pics, he did both. He also asked about pricing, I told him the proverbial "religion/politics/IMO" debate that would ensue , I believe $1200 is unrealistic, and informed him of my opinion, I also lowballed (IMO) the attachments at $75 and the hydraulic lift at $200, also I felt the tractor itself with the deck was a $350 to $400 dollar item. I closed it with (IMO) a recieved offer of $750 and he wanted it gone, if I was him it would be so. He was courteous, appreciated the input, and I informed him it was posted here, he could view the comments as a guest ( or join ) and to realize the people who are offering opinions here are collectors who monitor the market and offer their " two cents" based on experience, location, and dealings of such. In the end what it's worth probably will be determined by the offers he receives.

A going rate of $300 to $500 for a nice tube frame with attachments is about standard. These $1000 tube frame that has been gracing craigslist or ebay seem to last a vary long time some well over 2 years its because there out of the ball park.    Tube frames are dime a dozen I have around 20 of them and never payed more then $400 for any of mine and I have some nice ones.    The most mass produced tube frame was the 1050 with over 23,000 made.    More and more serial numbers I save I come to find that most modals of tube frame had a minimum of 1,000 made of each modal.

Why don't any of these 1000's have the original seat that's the hardest part to find

Have to agree,there are tons of tube frames out there,but some models are a little harder to find,like we have said supply and demand, will set the price in most cases

I think the way they were designed they didnt last long and fell apart, probably why they only went with that design 1 year.
