    That engine looks huge on the light weight styled frame and wheels.

    Power outputs on those old deflector piston 2 strokes were quite low for the size of the engine, so a 98 then would give less than a 50 now.

    I know I know..They build them smaller and slicker now days. I have a couple old boat motors from the 60's and there huge. There like the size of a 90 horse and there only a 50 horse..They were built to last back then. If it was made in america back in the 50's it was built to last forever! everything is so disposable now days..My dad and I are getting into restoration and I am seeing how much better stuff was built back then..

    That's why they are not in business any more! No repeat sales.
