    It does look an awful lot like a happy time, doesn't it?

    Looks like a a vintage cylinder bolted onto a China girl crank case.

    the ht is a pirated copy of a copy.

    the price is slightly optimistic. maybe half of that for a dedicated colector in that condition.

    the engine is not a ht but is definitely something pretty old. albania is a dead give away.
    if it isnt a genuine italian engine, its the cheap russian copy.

    exact age indeterminate, as it says both 1920 and 27...

    be a points ignition setup. i hate how non mechanicals get hold of lovely old machines and have no idea how to get them running.

    few more years and it will be 100!
