    Why stop there, lets add fuel injection and forced induction too.
    That is seriously cute.

    That is AMAZING! Surprised there's no oil getting flung all over the place from the exposed rockers in the R7 video

    Adorable! Where can I get one?

    And what on earth is it for? (The world's most expensive push mower?)

    The fuel supply is below the carburetors so it's not gravity fed? May look like an Airhead but I doubt it is a reproduction in much more than looks.

    I don't know if any of you other motorheads mis-spent any of your "youth" messing around with R/C model aircraft, but the OS Engine Company has been knocking out some amazing four-stroke engines for some time now.

    And just so's ya knows... the radial retails for a cool $3,500USD.

    And if $7 Large isn't enough, try $14,000.
