I put a new battery in the motorcycle and went for a short little ride and found this out for a neighbors trash . The price was right for sure.  I think it may be a Murray or an AMF.  Looking for some guidance from all of you.

The steering shaft is broke, tires worn thru and it's been repainted . 

The only identifying mark is the M or W on the back wheel. 

I welcome your thoughts , thanks

Nice find Kyle! I believe you are correct, and this replica is a Murray. If you search Dakotah Toys, you might find the replacement parts that you'll need. If you can't find what you're looking for there, I'm pretty sure the tractor restorer guy who will hopefully be attending next years Root's Show would be able to point you in the right direction or maybe be able to get you what you need.

Nice find my Friend. Other than the steering and wheels, it appears to be in really good shape. Worth a lot more than what you paid for it, that's for sure! :D

Agreed!!! I was going to give it to my pop as he has several but thought maybe I'd do something with it. He has a parts book from somewhere. Thanks for info. Glad to see your back on again.

Here's a picture of one I found on the net Kyle. At least you'll be bale to see what the decals and paint are supposed to look like.

As for being back on, today and last night was only a couple minute visit between laundry loads. For the past few weeks I've been working in Delaware, in New York City, and now heading for Washington DC again which should last until the week before Christmas. My time on here is limited and I sure miss you guys!

So two questions

1) what year range?

2) what's it worth restored and left as is?

not that familiar with the pedal  variety.  Thanks appreciate the help.

Kyle, right now from what I can tell, the tractor dates to around 1959/1960 era. As for value, in it's current condition, the tractor isn't worth more than around $40.00. However, if restored to correct original condition, the value goes up to around $250.00. If the tractor was completely original in perfect condition and had the matching trailer, the value then increases to above the $700.00 mark.
