    Sounds like the old way - 73 cm³. Or today, 73 cc.

    Ted,

    That's exactly what I was thinking...but it seems small for a snowmobile...Then again: what would I know about snowmobiles, I live in Florida.:D

    Ooops,

    I see it has been determined that it is a go-cart engine...makes sense now.

    Be careful Joe!

    I don't think it would be suitable for a motorized bicycle. It's on the heavy side, has large (wide) fins and makes way to much power (8hp?)

    I was thinking of proping it for a small personal sized airboat....

    Yes, a great application for this engine...just make sure Mrs. Joe holds the reins tightly on the maiden trip as this engine may have a surprising amount of power!

    No matter what you do with that engine, will make a really great story. Find documentation from it's beginning and Chronicle it to its final function. I am biased but a flying boat is a great thought. LOL

    Sounds great Jim.

    Woea LI Joe!!!! great web page. (Why not make it a link here? in your signature) Honestly from a marketing point of view, well laid out. Clear and easily navigated. Nice job and I mean that. A little dark (black and white) but looks dang good. Has all the main points. easy to navigate, clear, concise and well worded.

    Nice find. 70's era FRG Sachs motor. 73cc. If you take some honing stones and a drill will clean up that cylinder nice. Throw in a 33 degree cross hatch is all you need. Everything else looks great. That sucker will haul.. German quality. Enjoy the ride...
