Hi there, what do you guys know about this mower:

http://greenville.craigslist.org/grd/2630336907.html

Is it collectible? Is it worth $20? I think it looks like something that would be neat to fix up. If the engine has compression, should I go for it and buy it? Thanks!

For 20 bucks, Id buy it...but it looks like a reel mower, not a flail mower.

Looks like an old Briggs engine, that thing is really old..

I looked up the engine... It's a 1953 Briggs and Stratton Model 6s. Anyone know about these? I think I'll buy it! Even if it won't run, i'd buy it for the novelty.

Anyone own a Briggs & Stratton from the late 40's or early 50's? Where can I find parts? How do you like yours? Would it be worth my time to restore one? It wouldn't be for value, but for novelty.
