I have one that I need to go through the motor on, this is my old reel mower, gonna work on it soon once I get some other stuff taken care of, it's a GLF, and in nice shape, just have to get it running.

Very nice!    :thumbs:

I'm  willing to  sacrifice the honor of doing the first mowing of my yard to such a fine machine!

Feel free to start at your convenience.    :D ​     Rick
