    Recently retired, I am one of the lucky ones who made it in relatively good health. Feeling blessed
    I acquired a older cruiser style bicycle recently and enjoy the ride around town.
    The itch to motorized it and go further has me looking for engine kits.
    Wow have things changed over the years, the 3 hp Briggs horizontal shaft engine appears to be a thing of the past,
    So many choices, and so little information.

    Thank you for this forum,
    I will browse and learn.

    Welcome aboard!
    There are a few guys running the old Briggs engines, anywhere from 2.5 hp to 8 hp. Use the search on top to look, and also board tracker and DIY section. I am going to build one with a 2 hp Lauson ...............Curt
