Mike, that is a cool old machine you got there. And better yet a really cool keepsake!! I would say start the restore of it and you can always build it as you find the parts and know in time they should show up.

But the best question I have to ask is if you do restore it what color wouldn't become?

We all know you won't say that green word haha

Jim,

Thanks for checking for me, That is why I posted this here because I knew someone would possibly have a lead on some parts.

Brian,

Probably go with the metallic green for originality.....:D

Good luck with an interesting machine. What is the engine make and how does the power get from it to the chain drive?
