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?

There were some 1/25 Husqvarna and Yamaha dirtbikes included with various Revell and MPC kits, but they are all long out of production. Some info here: http://www.modelcars...33&hl=dirtbikes

You may want to look into die-cast bikes for a donor engine, too.

Al, how about the engine from the old wheelhorse tractor in this kit?

It would be more prototypically correct than a motorcycle engine, and this kit is cheap & plentiful! :)

Correct. The surf board had a small engine to power it. Looks like a horizontal drive old school lawn engine.

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've got an engine from the Lotus kit (assembled, but not bad) that I'll never use. PM me if you want it.
