The "What If" scenario. I love it and think about it a lot. Well since I have worked my entire life to retire early and have done so I would follow my "Dream".There is this small service station that has deteriorating. I would buy this property and renovate the building as a toy storage area/repair shop. I love the location and it would be an amazing project.I would need to
Stephen Keller... There are some people that have run the .049 engines from the 50s. there are videos showing this. Search Atwood Outboard or Wen Mac Outboard and you will find them. As for me I will never run them. Most of my collection are new never used engines I have collected through the years. So running them will ruin their value. The small twins... their lives are measured in minute

If you know about those cool. They are a pain in the butt.Again if memory serves me right the Idle Jets are extremely tiny. I remember having a hard time finding a wire small enough to go through it. I had to use the smallest drill on my tiny drill index... But once cleared all was good.Now I am curious as to how much of the air filter foam you sucked up? Did you suck up fine particles are bi
I had a 1996 and I had to clean the carbs one year after a long hibernation.I am sure that you know some of this... but have to say to be sure.On some of these bikes you need to remove a cover over one on the adjustments/jets do not remember very long time ago.Have you done this area?If your foam disintegrated... could there be anything blocking the intake tract?Sitting thinking... reverse blow t
That is the granddaddy to what I have. 1947/50 Indian Papoose.Mine is street legal.
Well everyone wish me luck...I did not get home till mid January. No chance to move these during the winter so I have waited and debated. Went to the door once no one answered. House does not look to be well care for.So I have sent a letter to them and we will see what happens. I do not need the projects right now but I hate to see these just sitting and rotting outside. I hate to see any bik
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I will be saving some of those pictures.I was in a hobby shop as a kid and saw an ignition engine and I think it was the start to what I have here. Only I moved it to my other love outboards.An impressive collection for sure.
Here is the next batch of pictures....Here is the AMPS or International Hobbies line. There are a lot of different models of this line but these are all I have. Beautiful scale version and gas powered under the cowling. One even has an after market electric starter.K&B Line with the OS and Super Tiger engines. These are still available and there are a lot more models of the K&B line bu

The earliest are from the 1950s to present.Most of the boats on the lower shelf are from the 50s and belong with the engines in the next picture.If any one out there has any they wish to let go PM me please they will go to a very good home.The room...Engines of the 50s with inboards. Some are the rare
All are nitro. Some are RC others for tether use from the 50s.Used to race the RC electric trucks. Never any good at it buy me and the kids sure had fun back then.

Omega ManOperation PetticoatOriginal "Time Machine"
The original Moped Snow Machine!I road one once and it was a ball.
Yes I use Progressive also and it is very cheap. It starts out a little high but as you do not have any claims it keeps dropping.Classic Plates in Wisconsin are good year round but January or something like that. But who rides in January in northern Wisconsin! Maybe Santa!
I never post on these types of topics but I will this time as it has a little to do with it.First I cannot access the article as it is blocked by the internet I am using. But I have experience with bullying. My approach may not have been the right way but it worked...The history is this... my son had a brain tumor at age 3 and survived it all. In school I heard he was being harassed, hurt and b
Here in Superior WI there is a motorcycle shop with one.I am in good graces with the owner. He got the bike to make repairs. After the price was given he never heard from the guy. The bike has been abandoned for @ 3 years.I always ask the guy if he will just let it go. I am getting closer to a yes everytime I talk to him. LOL!
FYI I think the insulator should be between the Intake and the Carb not the Carb and the Filter.
Sorry but everything went with the bike including any and all spares.Good luck.
I had all the manuals for mine. It was going to be a Keeper Bike and as such I source out all the manuals for them. They are very easy to work on. Did not need the manual much to work on it. The only way to stop them was to pull the decomp lever by the way.I sold mine on eBay after all the repairs. I got $2,200 for it. The price he is asking is pretty fair I think. Parts come up from time t
I had a P-50. Spent a lot to make it right. It was a wonderful machine and was fun to drive but at 25 to 27 max speed it just did not cut it for a keeper bike. Too many asshats on the road would honk at me for going to slow. Got very tiresome.So here is what I know...Do not make it go faster than 25 mph as the valve springs are not strong enough to pull the valves back. Damage to the head wi
Why delete it the system works well.Do not disassemble unless you have to. There is one bolt on the Pump that is LEFT hand thread. In the picture you attached it is very close to the "OIL PUMP" written in the drawing.I have a Suzuki with this pump system. It works perfectly. Yes the pumps adds more oil than you need but it works and does the job. It is also variable feed depending o
I have a very nice 1970 CL100. It sat on the back burner for way to long with other projects. I thought I really messed it up when I overhauled the engine, but when I finally found the issue it was a super easy repair and now it runs like a Swiss watch. I actually listed it for sale right after the repair. But after a few rides I decided that was STUPID! Such a nice fun little bike. Now the
I had 2 of the original Bike Bug Engines. Both were is extremely good condition and very complete. I got one running. I wrote about it a long time ago on here. The one thing I mentioned was that inside the carb the Throttle Body was prohibited from opening all the way. I never got a chance to try it with this restriction removed. A guy saw me on my first test ride and made an offer I could n
Check the gas cap vent too. Try it without the gas cap?
Verify that the Vacuum line to the petcock is good and solid. If it is not it will starve the engine of fuel at speed.
Let me know if you need the Cam Chain Guides I have a set for mine that I did not use.Yes they are bullet proof engines once set right.There used to be a Big Valve Head on eBay for the 100. There was also a company that made big bore kits for the 100 also but I cannot find them? It was Power All or something like that.Make sure to clean the spin filter on it.
