My '68 Broadmoor 717 was a gift from my father, in 1998. It was my first resto., at 8 years old. I used it for years and still have it, but after all this time, it's awaiting restoration again. It's always done a good job mowing the lawn and will keep doing so.
My dad had a '69 Yeoman 627, he bought in '91, which was handed down to me, and unfortunately stolen, and I've recently purchased a '69 2110 Landlord. I don't think I'll be leaving Simplicity behind anytime soon.
