Scored another Bricktop

A local Craigslist mower that I just couldn't pass up.

I'm actually thinking about restoring this one since I already have the other 21" as the daily driver for the cabin.

I am curious about the handle. Would it have had a plastic wrap or was it just bare paint from the factory?


It is a 5022 19 inch version. I got it home, dumped some gas in it, and it started first pull.

Re: Scored another Bricktop

Nice score
I love bricktops
That handle would have had a plastic grip originally

Great find! That should be a 1973, one year only model. I have a 5023 from 1974 and 2 5024's from '75 and '77. If you need a handle cover I have a big roll of the PVC cover material. I can hook you up cheap. Send me a PM if interested. Bill

Re: Scored another Bricktop

Very nice find! And it started on the first pull! I have a couple of those 1973 brick tops and really love them. My 21 inch 7022 has been my daily driver this year. The 5022 has yet to cut since the restore. I just canít bring myself to get it dirty. Thanks again to Bill (Yard Nazi) for finding me those NOS wheels.

In looking closer at that handle it does not appear that it ever had a handle cover, although one could easily be added for comfort when mowing. Scott (lbuser64) states that it originally was just a painted handle. Bill

Rex~Thanks for sharing your pictures again and making us drool.

Re: Scored another Bricktop

Interesting info guys. I just learned something again as I had no idea that some handles didnít have the grip cover on them.
