It's not often that I can figure out what breed an engine is, but I just can't do it this time.  I picked this guy up at the last auction just because I didn't know what it was, and it tickled my fancy with that big flywheel type assembly.

 

It will be just my luck to have bought the bones of some common thing that my brain is forgetting.

What is this creature?

I think you may be right on that Roger. I have no clue on the make though.

I think all the Hondas were overhead valve although I'm not familiar with any really old stuff previous to 1960's.

I did a quick search and it looks to me like you are 100% right.  :dancingbanana:  You're the man!

Just what type of fuel did a Whizzer run on? :D
