I own a Honey Bee that I have restored. What do you want to know? I have learned a bite the hard way.
I had a body man do a paint job on it. It looks great. I plan on selling it in just over 1 year.

Hi Arlen, Did you paint it all white? How about decals? Would be interested in visiting with you.

Yes it is painted all white.I had a local shop make the decals. There was enough left of the old decal to scrap it off with a razor blade. He still has the pattern. I can give you his phone number if you wish. They cost me $80.00 about 5 yrs ago.

Not Cubs but B's. Thusly the name Honey Bee. Later they used 140's and the like.

They were done in Everly Iowa. IH dealer owned this operation and for years used preowned tractors. Rebuilt them and did his own conversion. Not a conversion for the faint of heart though. The torque tube and one axle housing was shortened along with other adaptations.

Many in this area were used in fertilizer plants.

I may be totally wrong, but my foggy memory tells me that they were built on a reversed Farmall Cub. Don't remember the details, though.

Probably was the concept that preceded the skid-steer loaders.
