It was a pleasure doing business with you, Jerome !!

Did you notice the July 5, 1971 date on the Milwaukee Journal newspaper in the original 18089 box? .....That kit was un-opened until I opened it just before I offered it to you. .....I wanted to be sure that everything was there.

I've been storing that stuff in my attic since the late 1970's. ......I'm happy to see it go to such an avid Bolens collector !!!!

If you open that can of paint, and can rejuvenate it, it may provide a perfect sample to be computer matched for restoring Ride-A-Matics and VersaMatics, as well as many attachments.

Did the Ridemasters use the same green as the later models, or was it a darker shade? .....I do know the early Bolens yellow had more orange tint than the later, pale yellow.

It was a pleasure for me to. I did see the date on the paper but when I was pulling the unit out the paper fell apart so I did not save it. It was cool to see prices of stuff back then.

I think the green was about the same on all 3 of them maybe a little darker here and there. I have a good match for the ridemaster yellow if you look at some of my ridemaster pics you can see it.
