2-stroke mower addict!
So I decided about a week ago that it was going to be to expensive and hard to find parts to do a model 2 rotomo restoration for myself and put the idea to bed.

In the last few days a model 2 or 2A engine went up on ebay, I stopped bidding at $435, it has 4 or 5 days left and I screen shot the price and sent it to a few people saying wow basically. I had 1 of these people say I wish I could sell my model 2 stuff for that much. Then he said "I would sell my model 2 running and mostly there". I straight away said I'll pay $250. So all of a sudden I now have a model 2 engine being rebuilt for me and I already have the fuel tank and the metal fuel cap, the model 2 carby and throttle, I have 3 exhausts and hopefully 1 is the right one, I have the right choke and air hose and I have the axels too. The only 2 parts I need now are the base and the tin wheels. I have everything else.

Some headway when it comes to getting all of the part's for what now is going to be 3 Model 2 Rotomo's. 1 earlier tin wheel Model, 1 later model with plastic wheels and one that's basically correct but original patina that I will have basically all original to the serial number but to use from time to time to mow my lawns with. I do now have 4 Model 2 engines but because they were cheap and came with all of the running gear, the exhausts, carbys, throttle controller, cowl and starter pully.

I have just bought a badly put together model 2 with some much later plastic wheels on it, also had some welding done on it and a few other things that aren't original Model 2 like the pully. But it was $125 and it has a Model 1 barrel, tin wheel axles, it runs, and a few other positives that make it well worth the money spent because it's only a 45 minute drive to go and pick it up. Other stuff I've picked up include:
- 1 Set ​of excellent condition original plastic wheels
- 1 Model 2 badge
- 1 Model 2 top hat starter pully
- 2 Cigar fuel taps
- 2 More Model 2 engines with the above mentioned extras
The serial numbers of my engines are 48894, 57983, 79998 and 85651

I have also come across a good source for reasonably priced parts for my early model restoration projects. I'm not going to post pictures of anything I get through them until I have it but it's fair to say I won't have to pay crazy ebay prices any more![Linked Image][Linked Image][Linked Image]

Brought her home today and did some very very quick mock up pictures of it with plastic wheels before I put it away.

Yes there is plenty wrong in these pictures, thus the comment "Mock-up"
