I have this early 1967 Bolens that I would like to know what is is worth. It has a Wisconsin 12.5 HP single cyl engine that has been rebuilt by a professional engine shop. The piston and rings are .030 oversize.The chassi and hydro/transaxle has been totally gone thru and anything that was needed was installed. New input hydro shaft seal,"O"rings etc. All metal was sand blasted down to bare metal primed and repainted.

Well just figuring that it sold for close to $1000 back in 67, you could buy a decent auto for that kind of money. I know the work you do and based on what you did it should be worth the price of a good used car today. Of course it would take someone who appreciates old machinery and good workmanship on your behalf. I hope others chime in here.
With all the work, time and money you put into it it is as good as new will last a long time. Personally I would not sell it because no one will give you what it is worth. There are very few Bolens that are restored to factory conditions with engine rebuilds etc... Keep it for a show piece or like you say donate it to a very nice local antique museum.
