Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers

Newbie with a few questions

What have I done?  Told the wife I wanted a little project and that an old lawnmower would be a good start.

Found one on ebay and once I had it home I started trying to find out what it was, date of manufacture etc.

What I now know after a couple of days reading this forum and scouring the net is that it is a Folbate S2, probably sold under the Suffolk name as Folbate is missing from the handle and the Follows and Bate stamp on the wheel is hidden under the bearing cap, the original colours are bright orange and a light green.

Any info you can throw at me will be most welcome.
