Default Twin City 17-28

Found some pics of the '29 TC 17-28 that I restored 4 years ago. Made a big mistake selling it, but have recently got another one to restore. This one I'll keep!

Thanks for the pictures Phil. You did a great job restoring your 1929 17-28. If you get a chance put some pictures on of your 1928 Twin City.

Here is a couple of 17-28 Twin City tractors. The first one is a 1926 and the other two pictures are of a 1928 that is currently being used for a lawn ornament.

All nice looking tractors. I would like to have either a 17-28 or 12-20 in my collection someday.

Thanks for the pictures.

Phil, I sold a nice straight 17-28 a few years ago also. It hade not been restored yet, but I had put new wood down, and bolted on repo fenders when something else came along that I wanted more Here are pics of it.....a 1927. The guy that bought it owns Twin City auto parts, and this tractor sits in his buisness showroom....... nicely restored of course!

Jeff;
I have heard of a 12-20 just a bit north of me here that is supposed to be going up for sale. I'm trying to find out more about it. I've heard that it is running but we'll see. I'll try to post some pics of mine but it is stored away in the back of the shed behind the 20-35 Allis and "Old Smokey", a wartime WC with steel rear end housing.

Unfortunately I missed out on a 12-20 about a year ago. It was only 2 hours from my house too. The gentleman had the 12-20 and an FTA on full steel (which I was lucky to get). You could buy one or buy both. There is a picture on my profile page of it leaving his place.

I phoned about the tractors only to find out that the 12-20 had sold in 24 hours of being advertised. Some collectors from the U.S. (Illinois/Indiana, not sure) bought it sight unseen. Guess it shows the demand for them eh?

Hi Jeff, I like that FTA you got. If the 12-20 you speak of had a canopy on it, it did go into Indiana, and has been sold again.......the price is higher each time it moves! 12-20's are all 1925 and older, so they are a bit thin, and do not come up for sale much. The Borg & Beck 12-20's are really rare, as there appears to be less than ten of them left. The 17-28's are more available and still affordable, but for how long.....?

Thanks for that information Tony. The advertisement did say it had a canopy, and I don't believe there are too many 12-20's around here so it must be the one! That's what I love about this site, the ones you missed out on aren't missing for long!

Was there intention to flip it from the beginning or did someone make them an offer they couldn't refuse? Just curious, because the FTA almost went with them from what I understand!

Forgive me, I don't want to be rude or nosy, but do you know what they paid, what they sold it for or where it is now? Please, don't put yourself in a comprimising situation, I'm just curious.
