Thanks for taking the time do put this together - it must have been a lot of hard work.  A lot of great information for Bolens enthusiasts that is hard to come by. 

nice work

What a great read! Well written, and I learned a bunch. Thanks!

Thank you for the fantastic article.  I just took delivery yesterday of a model 1453.  Nearest I can figure from the article is that it is a G14 built from 1973 - 1978.  That in itself helps a lot as I haven't been able to read the serial number.

I restored my G10 but when i got the decals they only had the 76-78 style and mine is a 73 but im fine with it. Thanks for the great article.

As a new owner of a tube frame (1253-01), I appreciate the history of the series!  Thanks!  Is there a similar article existing or in the works for the large frames?

Hey, I had this whole article printed out in all the paperwork that I had for my Bolens! Great article!

Nicely done!  I'm going to go out the barn in the morning and look for that freewheeling pin. After owning my H16 for over 25 years that's something I never knew it had.

Loved the article! There aren't too many GTs that I dont like, but Tube Frame tractors are by far my favorite.
