Hello internet people...John Deere mower lovers, antique mower aficionados? Whatever y'all would like to be called.
This is my first day here and first day owning a classic JD mower. I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted an older riding mower. I started searching CL and found what looked to be a JD 110. I contacted the guy and started doing some research. I initially narrowed it down to a 2nd generation 110. The ad wasn't very descriptive and the pics weren't very good. Paraphrased: Antique John Deere mower, don't know how long it's been sitting. Tires hold air. Motor not locked up. $200 or trade.
I ended up trading him for some woodworking tools(routers, sander, etc) that I inherited and never used. So basically, i'm in it for the gas and time it took me to go get it.

There is very little other than surface rust and rusty bolts. A few small holes in the deck(pencil eraser). The hood is cracked and busted in a few places but it's fiberglass so no biggie. The top of the grill will need to be replaced along with all the knobs.
I know this isn't going to be an "i'll wash it and change the oil, ready to mow!" situation. I'll be lucky if I can use it this season. I plan to tear it down, soda blast everything and take inventory of what needs to be replaced and what is salvageable. I'll also tear down the motor and see what shape it is in and how much work I have ahead of me.
Once I got it home, I started doing some research based off the tag and have narrowed it down to a 1969 model. If anyone cares to correct me, the type/serial is:
T0641 137540 M

I look forward to my new project and will try to take and post as many pics as possible.
Here's the beginning:

I'll figure out how to rotate future images as well, just don't have time at the moment so forgiveness please.
