flea market

Well, I was down by the flea market and came upon this feller with a box full of axes. I picked up one and he said to be careful with it as it was real special. "What is so special about it ?" says I. He procedes to tell me this was the original ax used by young George Washington to cut down that cherry tree. "Hmm" says I " It don't look so old to me". He goes on to say it has had the head replaced twice and the handle replaced ten times -by his count.

Wow....A real piece of history! Say, I have a 1947 Cub with the original steering wheel. It has new final drives, motor, radiator, grille, hood, transmission, and wheels. Is it still original though? :D

Carm, I think that the deciding question is whether you still have the original air in the back tyres?
