    Pre war 98cc villiers midget

    Got about 3 of these engines. They were built in wolvohampton England (20 mins from where i live). Only problem is the output shaft being tapered and threaded (roughly 17.5mm) finding a clutch can be a problem.

    This one has a modified pocket bike exhaust

    That's a cool little motor. Sounds like a leaf blower with an industrial size flywheel
