    The thing looks brand new with just a bunch of parts taken off. I don't think I'd pay over $100 for it.

    That mower looks like it was a scavenger victim. The trans will be $200 at least. I think I'd offer him $100 also.

    I would say its worth a couple hundred since you have the parts to complete it.

    Tranny should work. I'm sure you can make the casters work with a little creativity with the cut off wheel and a welder. Why not use the engine that is on the machine and swap the parts that it's missing from your old engine? If it were me I would go for it. Like it was said about that Husky is not worth much. I wouldn't lose sleep in a bidding war over it. Just my .02

    I think you could pull if off. The tranny will pop right in. The front casters probably only need to have new holes drill to bolt them to the deck. The engine may be able to be piece back together from your engine. Or just swap the engine out from yours and have a small engine shop go through it first to get it running.

    I would pay $200 max. How far is it from you?
