There is a sale near me this coming Saturday, and a friend sent me a text with a pic that shows a Standard Twin in the sale. It looks to be complete, and apparently has one or more attachments with it. He thought I might be interested.

Because I usually focus on Bolens tractors as many of you know, I have no clue what an unrestored Standard Twin might be worth. I can tell you that it is on steel, and the wheels are doubled. I do not know whether the engine is free, and fully functional.

I know that some of you will be tempted to post "whatever you are willing to pay for it" or "it depends on ------ whatever", but I am not looking for that type of answer. I am looking for opinions from folks who have some knowledge of Standard Twin values in the current marketplace. If I decide to bid on it, I don't want to be offering more than it is worth.

I'm not desperate to have one. There is one for sale at an auction 15 miles from me tomorrow, so I may end up with one anyway.

Went to the auction and discovered that the unit was actually a Standard Monarch. With dirt plow, one half of the disc set, no cultivator frame but some of the items that would attach to a cultivator frame, and wheel weights, it went for $150. Carb was broken in two, but the engine was free and the hand crank was with the tractor. the Tractor No. was 403E2082.

No, I did not buy it. There were a couple of other folks there who were obviously willing to go much higher than I was willing to. It's not like I need more tractors! And I did meet a guy who might be willing to sell one of the ride-on lawn rollers that were available for Bolens 2-wheelers like the Power Ho's. So the day was definitely not a bust.
