Yes, it has a very nice swap meet. AND, you should be able to find a good, common engine for $300.

Skylar,
Oh yeah, you can still buy engines and parts at the August Portland "show" . Man, better get your walking shoes on....and better pack some rubber boots and a poncho while you're at it (it ALWAYS rains at Portland).
Yes, depending on YOUR definition of a good flywheel engine, you can pick one up for $300 or so.

Andrew....
