Gilson Sickle Bar - Pictures

I was browsing facebook garage sale posts a few weeks ago and the add said "Garden Tractor".. So just like any one of us would have.. I clicked on it. It was a blurry picture of a repainted MW and the ad said there was a 36" sickle bar but no picture of the sickle bar. I started to get the kid on christmas feeling so I asked for a picture of the sickle bar. I knew it was a gilson but i also know that gilson sickles are 48"... Now for the best part... The ad was asking on $250 . I didnt even ask to have the price lowered but the first they told me was they would take $200.... HELL YEAH! So the next day, after explaining to my wife how rare it was and how good the price was, I hooked up the trailer and went to pick it up. The tractor runs great... and the bar is only missing the rear support bar that connects to the rear hitch. This was easy enough to fabricate. .. I greased all zerk points and even took it for a test run.
