That is an impressive homage to to an old JD. The first thing I noticed when looking at the image was the way the steering column was changed. Now that I've seen images of an LA, that is some pretty nice attention to detail.

Sorry Bolens Guys, but I think this one of the best peices of work that I have ever seen. I think Bolens fans in years to come are going to have to get used to the idea of these drive lines being used for a lot of things, simply because of their brute strength, and reliability. I believe this is a testament to the marque, that it be used for other things, and is a great compliment.

Hate to say it but it looks nice.

This gives me an idea.I know where there are 2 old round hooded tube frames with mashed up hoods.The hoods are unusable,he wanted $50 for the pair and both are complete other than having bent,twisted and smashed up hoods.
I also can get ahold of a Farmall cub hood with tank Cheap.Hmmmmm Bolens Cub possibly?
The old tube frames would make a great foundation for a custom machine.

Well, it does look good, but I think we might have to report this crime to the proper authorities . . .
