Hello all

I've never owned a wheel horse but I'm in negotiations 're a C121 as I saw it advertised and fell for it in a big way...

I own old tractors and my intentions are to show the little horse alongside my others following a stripdown and refurb... just because I've refurbed bigger units doesn't mean I won't be asking your advice along the way as I little about them, parts sourcing etc so hope you will help me out as I go.. thanks all and I'll be back soon... I enclosed a pic of one of mine that i finished, thanks all.....Des

Almost normal 😉 it's a 108L  (long) off the first run of 108's in 1957 so reasonably rare... came straight off the field in Bremen Germany and then rebuilt... richly deserved after many years of hard work...🖒
