Have a S19 Speedex with a 4 spd trans & Tec electric start engine. Super clean no rust & good rubber. Has headlights, tail lite new wire reinforced drive belt new brake lining new steering wheel even new decals. Can't think of anything it lacks. Put in storage a while back now time to make a decision. Would need a battery & started. I got a big collection mostly bigger frames. I think it needs a new home. Just doesn't seem to fit in with the rest. Any ideas sure would be appreciated.FILE0034.JPG

Thanks. I done a total ground up. Cleaned the rear end out & fresh fluid - even replaced all the bolt hardware & new grease fittings. Figured I would store with no gas in it & put a new battery in when started. Even fabricated a new set of headlights. Pretty much like the day it rolled out of the plant in Ravenna. Time to take out of storage & not let it set anymore. Just don't get into the small ones & thought might be better in another's collection?

You must be a millennial. It's your tractor; make up your own mind.

Some times you need the handy little ones. Its a shame to part with something that you put so much into. If you do sell it, in a few years you will kick yourself. Good Luck, Rick

It's your decision, but the fact that you're thinking about letting someone enjoy it because it doesn't fit into you're collection, sounds like you made up your mind and were just looking for reassurance that it was a good thing. Ultimately it's your decision and no-one can answer how you'll feel when it's gone but you!  Good luck , Tom

Nope, we can't decide for you, but it sounds like you've pretty much decided, so all you have to do is pull that trigger.  I've sold some things in my time I thought I'd grieve over, but really, I never had a regret that really stuck.

Tech electric start engine! That's a Plus!

Guess it's time to get off the fence & sell it. Storage areas are getting full & time to put aside feelings. Sometimes stuff is hard to part with but it's better that way lest I become a hoarder or worse. Don't know what it's worth or even if I want to invest in a new battery but mind is made up to sell. Thanks for your wisdom folks.

I would like to sell mine, just need to clean it up and try to get it running first.

I have become a hoarder pretty bad, I've gotten to the point I need to clean up and get rid of a bunch of stuff

I restore them then park them in storage. It's more the challenge I enjoy & when complete then it's over until the next one comes along. We get attached but just makes sense to make room and let others enjoy also.
