When I started building this bike from the ground up, I decided that the only thing, that I would not (could not?) build or restore, was an original engine to go along with it.
My expertise in this area was simply non existing, but I can definetely assure you, that it will be a part of any future project that I might do.
I therefore found a guy who builds and restores these little engines, and kindly asked him to build one for me as well, assembled from only 100% original parts.
Here’s a few of the pictures he’s sent me, so that you can see the progress so far.
