Methanol is quite tricky to get in ASDA filling stations though!!

Oh, I dunno; I'd quite happily swap you my old XS for that up there... Just to keep you occupied and happy, like.
I'm all heart, me.
JAP horticultural engines are fairly cheap, 650cc single cylinder side valve, as found on Howard rotavotors.
I have 2 in the workshop plus a British Junior engine still attached to a rotovator.
Picture is not of mine but the same engine, the British Junior is 600cc.
Both the JAP and the BJ have a pumped oil system from a separate tank, the pump is external on the JAP engine, on the end of the crank.
They also have magneto ignition.
The old sidevalves don't make much power though. There was a record breaker many years ago who was using them when tuned up for record attempts, getting 100mph out of an old bsa m20 is no easy task.
If your quick!
I'm not sure I'd want to go that fast on something with no brakes!!!
I sold a complete rotavator with a JAP engine to a friend of mine, OllyO, who comes on here occasionally. He is collecting the parts together for a bike build, last I heard he had the gearbox and a girder frame.
You will have to get him to do build thread on that wendel !
A little late but running now, I think.
At first glance I thought it was a Ducati bevel racer!
