Default Re: Making a Harbor Freight engine look vintage/antique?

i've been contemplating on finding a way to mount on of these with the cyl foreward and reversing the output with some kind of gearbox.
Got an idea for a fricton gearbox made from Snapper mower fricton tranny parts. Be a clutch and gear reduction all in one.

A solid steel flat pulley on the motor, and a Snapper fricton wheel, on a jackshaft, against it.The motormount could be hinged, to move the pulleys apart/together.Or maybe a modded cent clutch on the motor with a flat pulley instead of sprocket teeth?
