    If u have no need for another motorized bicycle i would keep it in it's original form...posterity.
  3. I think you should motorize it.
    I also think that the first sentence in this post should be my new signature.

    That E Bay seller has " Wishful Thinking, " on his mind. Right now, A JD bike has little collector value. $100 would be about right for one. Maybe later on, they will increase . Do with it what you want.
  8. It's not a real Deere anyway for it does not have a tractor seat like MOOP.

    Well this is what I did with ole Deere John.
    I started to motorize it but just didn't look right, I removed all the brazed ons, new wheels,seat,cranks,bars and paint. louis

    seeing your restored bike - makes this one - want to go find something and clean it up !

    That bike looks nice.
    Would be cool to find a green engine to put on it , Like the old Weedeater brand engines.
    It would be a mean green riding machine.
    anyway nice bike!!
