        Lots of work to make that! With a one-lung engine doesn’t seem like it would go anywhere too quickly but then I doubt that’s the point.

          It almost looks like a Hit-n-miss engine. Very cool.

            Best keep your pant cuffs out of that flywheel!
            Ive got a buddy with a 1913 Pierce. Its been in his family for something like 50 years. He rides it all over, any car show that he gets the chance. Even raced it against a buddy of his with a 1920s harley, at irwindale.

                the exposed flywheel is like the ones on my antique John Deere tractors. On my old model A unstyled you have to start it using the flywheel. It has finger grips inside behind the face for grip. No safety features

                  One of the coolest pieces of mechanical art and engineering ever! Thanks for sharing it.

                  I don’t see a kick starter, do you suppose you have to turn the flywheel by hand to start it?
