your personal story is most incredible and a further attest to the human spirit

measure i have not come across a clinton yet in my scavenging-- the motors pictured are briggs 2.5 and 3.5 -- have a few 5 hp as well

just a Belgian update

went to the beurs swap meet in leuven sunday -- getting there was an adventure in that there were no public buses from the train station to the swap meet exhibition hall location even though the computer made no mention of that!!! any other day no problem!!!! meet -- it was about 3.5 miles away and raining and blowing like **** so i walked it of course

bought amongst other things a 1950 socovel a belgian brand pre 56 with a villers 200cc in it

scovel was a pioneer company with electric scooters in its day --google them for a history

the 1950 was from a guy from luxembourg--pretty clean and should run!!!!

lucky a morocan guy i had met at another beurs 2 years ago had a small trailer and was headed back to antwerpen --destiny at work

also ran into the guy i had bought the 1939 gillet 125 two stroke a few years ago from and am planning to get together to see his collection and perhaps find the cylinder, piston and gaskets
flywheel and electric to posibbly get it to run??!!

school vacation here for a week so no more welding class --i really miss it

i will try to figure out how to get some pictures posted??????

ride safe--- let your mind soar!!!
