I really didnít want to show pictures of my current project until it was more complete but for illustrative proposes here it is. The engine is a 1939 Wisconsin model AK. Yes it does weight 55 lbís but is rated at 4.2 HP at 2400 rpmís and has a long throw, I expect good torque.
It suits the era Iím most interested in perfectly and seems to run well (although not road tested yet).
But I do feel I was very fortunate to find it very cheap at a garage sale, Iím not sure I can count on doing that again.
So for my next build I wanted to use something thatís easily available, reliable, and inexpensive, budget is a big issue for me.
Mr. B, that bike looks amazing. I like the motor a lot and the whole setup too, great job!
