Yes, That is indeed the Ridemaster with the Optional "high clearance rear axle"

Looks a bit rough though...

Yeah, but for $125.00 ONE shouldn't expect a museum piece

There are people out there that would probably spend that much for just the rear axel... I can't image they are common.

That rear high axle is not too common...
This listing came at a Bad time for me.... I'm restoring the engine in the 67' EK10 and I'm going to be putting some money into my new Versa-matic shortly. Also... That dosent look to be a space saver LOL

I'll think about it...

As I know of that tractor is a 2 speed and the gear box is junk in it. Its hard to find another two speed gear box without takeing apart another tractor.

Also the engine is not the right one and this tractor was on ebay it was at alot higher price then that so i think its a typo.

9 hours for me one way.
