Thank you. Well I am pleased so far but hope it will run to.
It is 7 years since I start building it I think.
5 years it have been down for moving and restoring house and now I hope to fire it up soon

Hello Camm,

2.6mm bike spokes? An interesting choice of nice strong raw material.

The engine looks beautiful.   :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp:

But then, I always like round engines.  :facepalm:

Oh! sod the journey, lets hit the bar and pool instead.

It looks like you're coming to the end of this project.

I like the sound of it so far.
