I have to think that is another Herb Bedell engine, and one his more  unique designs. My collection hasn't reached the point yet that any of my engines set on the shelf unrun for 12 years! You must have quite a collection!

Looks familiar! I still have 5 of the 6 Herb Bedell engines engines I purchased from you last month- I run them all every few days. The 1" bore models seem to run much slower than the 2" bore models. These are great engines to run at shows, as they mostly run trouble free all day.
