Saw this Ride-away sitting outside someones yard down the road from me. Got a quick snap of it while i was driving. Seems as if they are using it as a lawn ordement. Going to take a ride down and ask him how much he would want for it. I still can't believe i found one down the road from me. Wonder if its the only one in Rhode Island?

When you go back to ask, ask him if he has any more of them! I found an RJ58 as lawn art, and I asked the guy if he had any more wheel horses, and there ended up being an RJ and suburban in the barn!

I just asked the guy recently and he said it was his dads and he used to plow with it up until ten years ago then sat. Sadly he would not sell it because it was his dads and the funny part is he didn't even know it was a week horse so i had to explain to him what it was lol. :roll:

Hello Guys

 

I know of 2 Wheel Horse Seniors that are for sale.

This does not happen often with less than 50 on the registry

it is something to put on the bucket list !!!

Hello

I have been informed that a new Lever Steer has been located

and has a new owner.

This tractor was not on the list before. I did meet the PO many

years ago who said he purchased the tractor that had been sitting

in the garage for many years, he knew the family and did odd jobs for

them. From what I remember this is an amazing unrestored original.

Congratulations to the new owner you are now number 20 on the list !!!

To me, finding a RS would be like finding the Holy Grail.  I haven't seen one in person, yet.  And I have no idea of where one is located locally.

Hello Everyone

 

Just a quick update on the Senior and Lever Steer Registry.

I am happy to say that there are 54 Seniors on the list.

It has been a very active few months new owners and new finds

A Senior was recently found in MA and a Lever Steer found in Indiana.

A few tractors on the list have new owners and I still have a Gentleman

in Virginia that has one FOR SALE !!!!

Keep looking they are out there.

If anyone that has a tractor and would like to update information on the Registry

please contact me at      rsgreco@embarqmail.com    or call  513-227-9030

 

Thank you,   Ron Greco   /    Big-Game

I am in the process of updating the Registry,

On the Senior list above I have 2 that I have to confirm

what state they live in.
 

I am thinking about sending out a Newsletter to the owners on the 

Registry, This will contain pictures of tractors, Serial Numbers and other information

collected, Parts Needed, Parts & Tractors For Sale.

 

I ask SENIOR and LEVER STEER owners to 

send me your mailing address, I will work on the first newsletter this summer.

 

You can email or call me.
