Anyone sensing a pattern here?  Would trapezoid be the correct shape to describe?

The green horizontal that i sold last fall at jacktown, had aluminum flywheels. The blue horizontal i recently bought at cabin fever, has brass flywheels and the visible fuel tank is my own build.
I saw a twin cylinder horizontal version at Coolspring 2 yrs ago, but someone beat me to it!

Hello to all on new forum,
  Yes Doug I do have this one, will need to take a few more pics to continue the count. In particular this small bore one needs my help to perform up to snuff. So I might try and run a more snorting 2 inch- two cylinder if you like and post video to count.

Len,
Would love to see a video of a 2cyl model. I have only seen one example and it was not running.
