Very neat little lawn tractor. Pretty cool that it has the little pickup box on the back. I don't know anything about them though.

You must have a rare one there. 3 out of 3 people know nothing about it.

That's the 1 st one I've ever seen, thanks for the pictures tho, that is really neat!

They also made mini bikes, http://jleibovitch.t...d.com/id107.htm

Thanks Guys. I have seen one other on the internet but it was all rust. Does anybody know how to decode a Tecumseh engine code to figure out what year it was made? It is a Model V70-125068 and Serial #8318 14834 I think it is kinda hard to see where it is.

Found this: USPTO TDR Document Viewer

It's a paper at the Trademark Office. Lists a second name to search: General Leisure Products Corp.
Looks to be a parent Company that made textiles.

That's only the 3rd pic of a Bonanza I've seen. And, this is the best Bonanza I've seen. This one is in GREAT OE condition!

That's a great piece of history that you have there! I also like the "pickup" feature! Nice find and best of luck finding info on it!

Thanks for all the comments!! Monday I am going to go get the tires fixed probably will put tubes in them and get a new battery. Also going to try to wash it and waxed it and see if it comes out to almost show room condition. I don't think it will be far from it.
