Original fly wheel ?

Bigger than my pref but very nice . You said you saw it at Pimpama Rally , right ? Interesting , Ballarat's Soho Foundry followed in the Birmingham foundry's footsteps , really a shame the furnace itself had to be be shut down but they still do some work in metal spinning .

Its the old engines that appeal to me . Saw a fantastic looking dream machine listed a couple of days ago , inverted Tangye (on gas) , might be out of my price range but would like to snap it up .

And look at this little beauty , a Hornsby hot bulb  oil engine . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3Huh1UPb14 . Wouldn't mind adding it . Runs sweet as pie .
