Um...ok Looks like a waste of 2 good engines and a bunch of other spare parts.

I don't know about this one, but yesterday I read about one on ebay that said the other cylinder was a dumby, just glued on.

this one?

These are ridiculous! At least good for a laugh. Since the dummy has a raised glow head, and it says "bolted" I think he drilled and tapped the case for a bolt, with a washer under the glow head.

I would stay far away from this one!

Look at what happened to Jason_WI! https://www.coxengineforum.com/t2155-another-049-twin#32121

if you look close...
it is two cases cut diagonally and it looks like JB weld or similar to join them together....
and then a home made nose on the crankcase.... i would guess it is made from a couple of destroyed cases.

no details... sounds like a good one to miss out on Clapping

if it does run.... i cant imagine it being for very long.... Sad Goodbye

but it is 020, what are the tank and 2 piston/cyl worth?

I can't believe what these go for. No wonder people make them to sell.

Indeed, but this seller seems not to be a liar. He says more for show than to go.

Found also a twin on Ebay. This time it is a in-line engine. My italian is not good so i do not know if it works.
But I know that the italian are very smart hobbists - Wink
