Encouraged by the frame try out it was time to look at the engine.

A complete strip and rebuild followed. After fitting the alternator

which I got from Germany I decided to try for a spark.

All I need is a piston, and some paint on the cylinder head...

A piston has arrived and been fitted, I need to know whether it will run or not now.

I say that as the piston is a good 4mm below the cylinder top TDC.

Then there's the ports, at BDC the piston is 3mm below the port base, still...

Whilst pondering this little problem I decided

to make a start on the wheels, no going back now...
