This is the other item I won on ebay a few days ago.
I was a little disappointed when I opened up the package and put it on my 800 only to find out the cover is for a small frame :wallbanging:

The seller had it listed as a "NOS G14 Tubeframe Cover" :shoot2:

At least now my 2 restored tubeframes will not get dusty anymore LOL :D

Thats an awesome piece!!! Being for a small frame just means its older, which I would think is even harder to find. :thumbs:

Nice score, Brian!

At least you have a variety of covers -- you wouldn't want them all the same. :D

I don't know for certain, but I think there may have been. .......I'll have to check some old price sheets to see if anything is listed, as all of the accessories did not usually show up in the brochures.

The 1972 price sheet shows a # 15112 Protective Cover for the small-frames. ....List price was $19.00, dealer cost was $14.00. ....Is this the one you got?

I'll dig through my stash and let you know if I find any info on an EK cover.

Brian, I went through the info I have here at home, but have not found anything about a cover for the EK's.

A 1966 price sheet listed a #18202 Plastic Tractor Cover for Husky tractors - $10 list price.

A 1972 price sheet listed a #18527 Protective Cover (for tube-frames) - $23 list price, $17 dealer cost.

A 1974 Accessories brochure listed covers were available for G8, G10, G14, H14, QS16, QT16, & HT20 but did not give item numbers or prices.

My Bolens information is not complete, so that does not prove that an EK cover did not exist.

I have additional info at another location which I will check when I get a chance.
