Go to an army surplus store and pick up an old amo can ( they are retangular and available in 12"x 4" X 10" with a gasketed top so they are waterproof. Paint it orange (or black) and bolt it to the back of the seat. My father had one on the back of his Simplicity 728, and it never got in the way. You would be suprised at how much you can put in it. I picked one up for the back of the 728 that I'm restoring now.

Perry, Perhaps you could fabricate two metal straps that are around 3-4" long, and about 1" wide each. Drill one hole in one end. Drill two holes in the other end. Then unscrew the original bolts holding the seat down... Put the one-hole end of the strap in the bolt hole, and do both sides, hooking em' up using the original rear seat bolts. Then, the other end with 2 bolts- drill 4 holes in an ammo box- 2 on either end to match the distance between the two straps. There ya go- no holes in the original tractor. :)

:O:O :D You could do something similar for the Simplicity seats -- get some flat stock and bend it up into an L-shape. Mount it between the seat and the seat pan with the leg of the L sticking up behind the seat, then bolt the toolbox onto the L. The toolbox would be "behind your behind" and out of the way... On my "flat-fendered" HB-216 (B-210 on steroids), I put one on the fender beside the seat. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/Kent/hb-216_left2.jpg[/img]

This... a surrey top from a Sunrunner... not quite the orignal surrey top for a B model, but close enough. I've used it at a couple of tractor shows -- it usually just collects dust... :I

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
