Never seen one, but know of another one for sure, if not more. Great find if you got it, buy it if you didn't.

Hears the kicker, this guy just won it in a estate auction for $600!!!!
Doesn't want to sell, wants to play with it. Been sitting in a shed of the original owner since 1986 it runs but pops through the carb a little hasn't tried to move it yet.

Hi,

Here I thought it was something really different. It is a normal machine under that heavy duty sheet metal (which is some really rare stuff).....

I've seen a couple pictures of 430s with the hard nose but not a 420.
FYI, there is no standard grill under it just the hood with the air intake relocated to the center of it.

When he finds out how much it will cost to get it running, that may change his mind.

I did pull on the steering leavers and they were pretty stiff, had to push them forward, wouldn't go back on their own.
I put in a plug for you Lavoy and told him about this sight his name is BJ hopefully he will join?

I hope it doesn't get scrapped, that would be a shame.
