Another R&V joins the collection
« on: 03 November, 2019, 08:51:38 pm »
I popped up to the auction at Wellington auction last Saturday (a short 10 hour trip). I will post a full set of pics when time allows. I didn't really plan on buying anything (as I didn't take a trailer) but this little Root & VanDervoort came home in the back of the wagon. It is a 1917 AR 1hp engine rebadged by CCM as a 1.5hp. It is a little wild but it does run.
My 8 year old has decided it is his engine to restore :)

Samuel will have it running sweet in no time, under guidance of course.

Samuel has big plans for this little engine. The more young ones that can be brought into the hobby the better.
A short video of the engine running.
