I am building a salt spreader to go in the back of a dump truck, which would run on an air cooled engine. Have considered motorcycle models but have not seen and 1/25 scales. Anyone with any ideas?

The old MPC Lotus / STP turbine Indy car kit #6025 has a pit tractor with about a 12hp aircooled.

I remember that kit. I built it when it first came out in the mid 1970s. It was a Wheel Horse lawn tractor. I never get too excited about car models.

There are a few motorcylcles in 1/25 scale. Revell issued some as parts packs but i have only seen them on ebay. there is also one in the mpc 70s monte carlo kit. There are other ones but nothing issued in the last few years and normaly hard to find.

Thanks to all for your input. I do now remember the monte carlo, as for Revell #6025, is $40 or higher on ebay so I may not go that route even though would prefer it.

I have an older Triumph and some other kind. Would have to find to tell, but they are 1/25. Revell I do believe..... Each one was in its own seperate little box. Maybe get a pic tonight if I can find it.
