Yeah...lotta overspray on the decal.

Still, not a bad looking 900, but a bit overpriced.

I agree that it is still a very solid looking old Bolens, but anybody who would do a butcher paint job that bad should be watched closely, especially with him saying its all original !

Kind of like those tractors posted " just restored " in their ads with all sorts of over spray on them , Al

I'd rather have the original rusty paint than a mess like that. It looks like a 4yr old painted it!

Yeah, I agree. It's easier to restore and/or paint the original old rusty finish than to attempt to fix a bad butcher job like that. IDK what people are thinking with stuff like this. Do they really think people are stupid enough to believe that this is all original or are they just misunderstanding what that really means? I guess all the parts and components that are in it could be original and never been replaced, but then he threw a couple cans of Krylon at the tractor and they blew up all over the finish?

And I mean, if you are planning on doing a quick re-paint and don't want to remove the original decals, haven't people like this ever heard of masking/painter's tape? Just tape over the decals before you paint so it looks good and you don't get overspray all over everything.

Also, I could be wrong, but aren't the wheels supposed to be red on this too?

I see the deck is the original green at least... except for the belt cover which looks like he sprayed some JD Green over it while it was still on the deck as you can see some overspray on the deck as well!!
