Tom- This was my thinking exactly. I believe we were mistaken my friend. That looks to be some kind of contraption when it's in operational mode!

Chainreaction- Thank you for that link. That's the one. Being in the Great Northwest, and working with chainsaws regularly, I should have known- but you could fill an ocean with what I don't know.

I have yet to even check compression. It looks rough though.
Still, I'm excited. This could replace my dream "5hp Briggs" cruiser build. I will do an inspection, and return to tap you good folks for guidance. Of course, any ideas or info you can share now would be appreciated.
It's cooler to not fall off your bike.
