Default Roof Ranger Rider

I'm trying to find out more about my mower. It is a Roof Ranger Rider made by Roof Manufacturing Co., Pontiac, Ill.
It has a Briggs vertical shaft 5HP engine. It uses a planetary
friction drive. It has two bicycle type rear wheels and a single
front steering tiller wheel. Any info? Is the company still alive or do I have an orphan? Thanks, Rex.

Roof is out of buisness and parts are almost impossible to find. Bachtold bought Roof but then they went out.
