Had since I was 2yrs old. Worked great, no problems for first 25yrs but things started to fall apart after that. New engine in 1997. I used my amateur skills to weld and form pieces to keep it going. Still starts and runs good, however smokes a little upon startup for about 30 seconds then runs clean. Biggest problem is the blade pulley broke off 4yrs ago. I couldn't find another so I welded it the best I could but the blade vibrates and therefore blade belt only lasts a few months. We're selling the house early next year. I have no idea what to sell it for. New intake and carb, magneto, plug, blade in 2021. Rear bushings replaced in 2000 but should be replaced again since the chain started to fall off again when you go in reverse, however I installed a temporary roller guide for the chain so that doesn't happen. Many other amateur fixes that I forgot about. Near Cleveland, Ohio. How much should I list this for?

I would say $250 or best offer. You’ll have to find someone who is a gambler.

Thanks Rivets. More than I thought so I'll first try $200.

You could also list it for 300.
Let them bargain you down to 250. and you both win.
