That's a nice looking little engine.

Any other details on it yet or have we got to wait till it gets here?

Adam you have never seen anything like it over there they are in gardens growing flowers out of the hoopers.
The Rallys make are's look like garden shows.
Very help full they always now were to send you when you want parts.
I have a chap over there if I want to buy somthing off E-Bay and they dont ship over here, he buys it for me and gets it sent over.
I have just got hold off an oridgenal trolly for one of my Fairbanks Morse Engine I asked him to buy it for me on a buy it now, never herd anything from him .I thought he was on holiday.
He went and got it for me a 4 day round round trip he charged me $50.00 for fuel.
This is it in one of the crates coming over
