A very early 3 1/2hp - likely 1913. It has the two piece timing cover, which was only on the first few engines made

G'day all.
Graeme I sold your father a very early 3 1/2HP motor years ago with a two piece timing cover, he said at the time it was very early for a 3 1/2HP job.
It came out of a house down Wollongong way.
Howard.

I've still got that one Howard. Finding the cycle parts for it will be a big challenge!
