Old Iron Junky
Well I had a nice treat today. Having a shop you sometimes get to go to a customers place to fix on something. Went to a guys place where he used to be a Bolens dealer from the 50s to the late 80s to put a door glass in a pickup. Done work for him in the past and looked at a few things he had left from the dealership. Its always fun to BS with someone that sold things years ago that your interested in today. Today I asked him if we could do some horse trading for the work done, he agreed and let me go look though the old parts room to see if anything would interest me. Sadly didn't find much left ( due to a fire in the late 70s) that was of use to me, but he had a H14 still sitting there that I talked to him about 3 years ago and didn't want to sell it. So I asked how much today and he said $450. It supossibly has real low hours on it, just used it a few years to cut grass around the shop. Didn't snope around it to much (so it wouldn't seem was real intrested), but looked like a 42" deck on it. He said it still runs and the hydro works good to. Is $450 to much for it? Haven't paid that much attention to the newer tube frames.
