Got a 1975 214 today for $125. needs a lot of work .  the front tired are shot, so I had to take a pair with me to get on my pickup.  This will be the ninth  Deere that I bought to restore, I only get the 110s and 200 series.  the other 8 have been sold.  Family members got a few of them.  And they were happy and still happy with them. 

It will be totally taken a part and checked over, cleaned, remove the paint and repainted.   Looks I will have to make a new wiring harness for it.  The deck in solid.  Fun time in the garage again.  Good thing I got extra part if I need them.

Does not look too bad and solid beginning for another project.  Where did you find that one?

It should be a couple months, I hope.

It is all apart now. Now cleaning, remove the paint, checking the part over, repaint all parts, buying or making new parts.  Than the fun begins - putting it all back together.
