    Luv the design of your VeeTwin Andrew. The overhang crank, (appreciated by me with 3 engines of such), cylinders (in brass! :cool:) being on a pair of "jumping boards" mounted to the frame base had to be an eye catcher in consideration for Project of the Month by the moderators.
    Enjoy! Dave

    Wow it sounds good. I have been thinking about building an engine but not decided exactly what to build yet?

    What fuel does it run on?

    What about lubrication while it runs?

    What is bore, stroke, compression ratio?

    Was it hard to get the carburetor to work?
