Perfect weather for some shade tree painting outside, so I shot the Scat's sheet metal. Here's the tank.

Thanks, Mutt. I'm far from being a pro painter, but I think for a rider and not a restoration for judging it'll pass muster.

I am jealous of your progress. I will be able to resume work on my 48 in a few weeks. I am just about to the end of my week mowing business in Southern California. What is that machine in the back ground of your tank. It looks old. stan

It's an old concrete mixer, specifically a 1913 Packard Batch Mixer made by the Acme Cement Machine Company of Keokuk, Iowa. It has a 6 hp Novo hit 'n miss gasoline engine.

You're welcome. Almost all of the engines run and most of them have been restored/maintained by their owners. I got to watch the 'monster on the Hill' start and run on 2 occasions. It's unbelievably quiet for the mass of machinery in motion. I had to laugh when I found out most of them are considered '2-strokes'. It had nothing to do with gas/oil mix.... They didn't have/understand the concept of compression as used in common engines now-a-days... that's what came next on the evolutionary scale of engines. If you like old bikes then you like 'old'. This place is worth visiting even if you have to travel. BUT check their website for their 'Events' as that's when the most engines and owners come together to fire them up. I've always wondered if I could match a small hit & miss engine up in a motorcycle frame....... also, when they have their 'Flea Market' a couple of times a year there are all sorts of engines on display and for sale. Hit and miss engines that run and don't run average between $400 to $700. When I lived in Jersey I'd have been laughed at if I offered less that $1100 for a small running one.
