Default 1927 & 1958 build

Had this 1927 Briggs & Stratton and this 1958 rollfast bike sitting in the shop. This winter I merged them.
It has a kickstart & exposed valves. Had to build a reversing mechanisim to allow the kick start to be in the proper position.
Was well worth it. Runs fine & putts around the neighborhood fine.
