That's really GREAT Nick!!!

Looks just like mine, with a disc crank and a dark reddish/maroon sort of color. Yours looks a lot better from here, but mine seems to have a super mechanical/internal condition as it runs easily on just a breath.

Seems to me the 1/4 horse Sipps have a distinct advantage in that they don't need a mega boiler to be able to run well.

Just when I was going to let you have your choice for $150.00 Nick...lol (just kidding for those who think I'm serious)
Looks like a nice original 1/4 hp'er.

The Size is very nice too - about a Stuart Victoria

Now you only have to hang on a boiler and let it run...
