Cadet 81, new arrival

Recommended Posts

Just got back from a day trip to Cornwall (as you do) with this, its an International Cadet 81 of the late 70's period, complete

with mowing deck... rather pleased but somewhat tired now, started out from home at 2am and got home at 5pm... :hyper:  

 

I will have a good look at it tomorrow, it's parked in its new home now, here's some photos to be going on with... :)

It was in Redruth (only 297 miles from home) saw it on Facebook (so it is worth looking at)

Saw that one, looks a bit of a basket case


Looks in really good condition paul is that two you have now ?

Your racking up the miles picking these up!

Thanks Chris, if you want these things sometimes you have to go the extra mile !!! (or a few hundred)

 

Day job ??  Oh yes I pop in there occasionally, today and tomorrow are holiday days :)

Cadet 81 has been retro fitted by the previous owner with a recoil start Honda engine (Mr Briggs he go bang), put

some juice in and it went first pull :D

 

Dating guide dates it correctly as a Cadet 81 and built in 1978 :)
