So I got the cart, it's in my barn drying out a tad right now. So I can begin stripping/sanding it after it's done.
When I saw it there was one piece of wood near the seat on the folding side was split and rotted, and the dash had what seemed like a split and slight rot.
however, once I brought it inside of the barn (from outside on a cement pad in the rocky mountains) the "rot" vanished and left what looks and feels like normal weathered wood with a slight split. Either way I'm replacing these pieces with new ones that I'm going to cut and bevel to match the old ones.
The wheel doesn't squeak but it does wobble in place because it's loose. My dad suspects it's because it is missing a codder pin which just wobbled off. Though the wheel itself is true not warped many of the spokes are slightly loose. Though the wheel spins several times (more than 5 or 6) freely.
The other wheel seems pretty solid and it's angulature is appropriate. It also spinds freely and doesn't wobble in place.
The rubber on both tires is completely free of cracking. Some of the floor boards are warped a bit though none of the metal bits (hub excluded) are rusty.
The fenders are in in good shape, not warped out of shape though one is slightly knicked up, I don't see anything overall, that a bit of fine grit sanding won't fix.
to top it all off, It's very very very well balanced. Though it weighs a ton, once you pick the shafts up it's night and day to my jerald/sulky which in comparison weighs a ton in the shafts. I was very impressed. It even gets lighter with people sitting in it imagine that LOL.
Overall I'm very excited about my "find" and the woman whom I purchased the cart from was beyond fair and reasonable on the price.
sorry for the long post guys I will try to upload pictures as soon as I can. Though it's been quite the week here in colorado with all of the snow we've been getting! I'm behind on everything all of a sudden, LOL.
