I have my grandpas old B-112 I got last year after they passed. I started tearing it down last year to rebuild, but just kept finding more and more that was worn out and needing replacement. I haven't worked on it in months. This week I was looking on Craigslist and found a B-112 for sale locally. I went today and checked him out. The owner had gotten all new tires, new belts, new blades, rebuilt the starter-generator, replaced the bgb, and replaced the carb. The lights front and rear all work and are in great shape. The Varidrive feels tight, and he had a spare transaxle, front axle, four wheels, and some other spare parts. I couldn't say no. She was $600, and I felt it was well worth it to keep me from buying all the parts it would've taken to get my grandpa's back on the dirt again. I have my grandpa's tiller and deck, and a belly scrape blade, a brinly turn plow and adapter I got last year. I'm going to go through this one little by little and check/ grease and lube everything so it doesn't get worn out like my other one. I am going to repaint this one and re-decal it like I had hoped to do to the first one and keep the first for parts.

I think that was a no brainer.  I don't think much of the seat that came with it though - I'd look into swapping grandpa's over.

The wetland cammo is out of style.  The other tractors will tease this one.

Good looking old machine.  I see nothing wrong with that seat.  At least it is covered good.  Some people are just pickier than others I guess.  Won't be noticed when your sitting on it.
