Re: Marston 340cc Twin

Is that the same engine that is shown on the SOs web site I wonder? It was last seen in that area of the US. I believe only 4 known to exist. Interesting to see the pics for sure.

Ah yes, I remember. I’ve still not got around to looking at my spare engine. So this makes 5. Perhaps we should start a register :P
