    early on, Tom had a small website ( & this forum was a sidebar, the arlo interview was the time it was THE authoritative article. looking back at it, seeing how pertinant most of his info still is...well, let's just say we could open a discussion about lack of progress, but we won't ;)

    I think it would be really interesting to see how a blueprinted HT ran.

    Too bad OSHA makes running a small foundry nearly impossible in the USA, these engines could use some design improvements

    i think a high-end HT would rock the house, it's the cutest lil' design...but i also think it would be pretty pricey.

    me? still dreamin' of a "made in usa" version :)

    I've decided that I NEED one of those Triumph style heat sinks for the exhaust pipe. I'll make my own, though.

    The guy in the second picture had 'em.
