Photo Home built tractor in Ukraine

Travelling the countryside where one more likely overtakes a horse and wagon, was surprised to come upon this assembly of a Briggs like rope start air cooled engine, Lada transmission with exposed clutch and some sort of industrial rear wheels.(large dia splined hub) The guy was quite flattered at our interest and attention. He had replaced his horse and was on his way to collect some sacked potatoes.

Now that's a sharp lookin' 'Butt-Buggy'! Is the engine 2 or 4 stroke? There is a fellow that I know from Yugoslavia that told me that most small engines that he remembers from 'home' were 2-stroke. Just curious - I'd like to find some obscure central European small engines to add to my collection.....

Sorry fellows, we were in a bit of a hurry to get home before dark so just took a quick look. Dont know if it was a 2 or 4 stroke engine. A glance underneath revealed the Lada transmission and the clutch assy was open, Not in a bellhousing. It was just fun to see the guy make something out of nothing probably with not a lot for tools. It was all I could do to give him kudos for a job well done. With my limited command of the language I couldnt get technical Vic
