For an Atco to turn up, you'd expect it to be in the old British sphere of influence. Atco always bought in engines. They used Villiers, and in recent years, Kawasaki as well as B & S.

Hi all, I have added some pictures to my album, so i thought i better put one on a post, hope you like it so far, I'm struggling to be honest, due to lack of room, but really enjoy this, Thanks to the forum, this is a great place to be! :)
I took some time to study the mechanical connections that are visible & looks to be robust, as does the rear triangle. Would you mind posting a photo of the chain stay connection to the seat post & engine mounts? What make and model cycle are the front and rear wheel assemblies from?

The complete assembly is visually quite pleasant & unique. I suppose you intend to bring it street legal, display it or run the byways as an outlaw? Whatever the purpose I very much favor this project!

The problem is in Britain, what he has there is judged by the law to be over 50cc and is therefore a motorcycle. He can register it and insure it for road use, or just get some 3rd party insurance so he can use it at shows and other non highway events.

Midway between the throbbing hotspots of Kettering and Huntingdon. Conveniently placed to run down to Mopedland in Suffolk if you want to pick up cyclemotor parts though.
