I have never seen one of these before, but according to the seller it's a 2.5 cc Motorlet, designed by Ivan Petr and manufactured in Czechoslovakia around 1962. Serial #013 and originally came with both a Diesel and glow head - the porting looks to be better suited to glow operation

Good question Paul ! Since I started this thread just over 10 years ago (on March 7th 2011), I guess I've averaged at least 2 hours per day at a conservative estimate. That equates to 728 hours per year, or 7280 over the 10 year period, and that's around 300 full days ! God, I think you've just convinced me to chuck it all in

Bob,
Your efforts are MUCH appreciated.
Your skill at bringing some of the information and rarities to our notice is priceless.

Many of your obscure finds have made their way into my collection.
So I for one offer a heartfelt thank you, please keep up the good work.

Mike.

I think even the Winston brothers would have a hard time holding down their lunch after seeing what someone did to their Deezil.
