Hub Caps and Trade Input Needed (Pics Added)

Recommended Posts

bowhunt4life

I have an opportunity to pick up a set of 8" and 12" baby moon hub caps that a simplicity dealer has on an old landlord for their offer $125.

I talked to another simplicity dealer who has the 8" caps on the shelf and will sell me the set for $16.95 and I have bought these for this price.

How do I go back to the first dealer and nicely try and get their price down?

Also I have a yellow AC round top tiller and mule drive that I am trading for a mid mount grader blade. Good trade?

How nice are the $125 used ones. I would buy the $16 and the others will show up eventually. That dealer could get that for them on ebay and more than likey knows it. My local dealer keeps an eye on ebay.

The two attachments usually bring the same money. That depends on how bad you need a grader blade.

yes i would think the tiller trade would be good , tillers are easier to find than the graders

id="quote">Agreed...I often see graders on CL priced anywhere from $125-350, and they usually sell fairly fast regardless of price (tough to say what they actually sell for). Tillers have to be one of the most commonly found attachments, and with patience, you can get a nice one with mule under $150 pretty easily. I don't see the roundtops fetching as much as the later styles. They are narrower, pitch a lot more dirt, and utilize a mule drive/pto system that is more complex and frequently incomplete.Also, the 8" are much more common of a find than the 12's. So are the 10's, which look very nice on rear wheels...just check out Zippo's 10" baby moon trick.

now find the caps in decent shape is another story sm00. but SOS pad and wax can do wonders to them . i have found lots of 8's a few sets of 12"s . never had the 10's.

Depending on how original or correct you want to be, find a golf cart custom shop or look online for golf cart stuff. I have heard that some carts use 6 - 10" wheels and have hubcaps available.
