Default Rare 2 banger, 2 hopper, 1-1/2hp, F/M Z.

So cool, I was at a show in Beverly, Ohio today and saw a 1-1/2 hp, two hopper, two cylinder F/M Z. Or would it be a 3 hp? Man, I do wish I hadn't of left my camera on the kitchen table. This guy took two Z's and welded them opposite of each other so that both engines used the same crank. He offset the connecting rods, each had it's own ignition system. Check out what he used for points. Brakes switches. He made two lobed collars and slid them on the crankshaft just inside the flywheels. Had brackets that held the switches just above the collars. Each cylinder had it's own automotive coil. Sounded really neat and looked great running. I really do admire you guys out there that have the talent to do something like this. David.
