What I know, has a tecumseh 3.5 hp engine, 19-0-54 on case, has a bird (eagle maybe) on the number plate with imperial under it. Handlebars resemble old trail 50/70 bars. Any help ideas are appreciated. Neat little bike.
Thanks for the info, I just picked it up and was interested in what it was about. It looks like from another thread the engine is from 1967, I can't find any stampings or identification marks anywhere but would like to narrow down the year. Thanks again.
And hopefully not just two holes where it used to be. Way to help this guy out Andy. It sure looks like a nice survivor. I note that the chain guard is different than the brochure. Does that dictate which model it is?
I can see the ID plate under the gas tank in the photo above, so it's still there. I'm not sure about the guard. I know those were used on some models, but not others. I'm not sure if that's related to the year or not
yes, it's on the far right side of the tag. However, Tecumseh started making those style ID plates in 1971 and stopped in 1973. It's somewhere in that range. The first digit of the serial number will indicate which year.
