NSU Hybrid

OK, chassis put together and engine hung on string.

This looks like the engine will be too low,

I was going to make some mounting plates for either side but this may not be a goer now.

I decided to order a different engine and see where to go....

The second engine has arrived, it's a Tomos one from the late 80s, and an interesting challenge at that.

An afternoon was spent with a basic frame lying on the floor with a straight(ish) edge.

As can be seen the sachs is shorter, but the Tomos flatter,

Hmm. Ground clearence may not be too much of a problem.

I need to make some plates up, but which engine?

Could be the Sachs when the new cylinder head arrives...
