    This is my Perkasa MTB that I built with my Dad in the 80's. I sold it in the 90's and purely by chance, was able to buy it back again in the late 00s.
    Originally we fitted it with a 22cc Kawasaki Strimmer engine, with a centrifugal clutch and pull start, it was much better than ic and needing to get it in the water asap so it didn't overheat. It also gave the option of being able to stop moving, purely by dropping the throttle, unlike ic.
    With the air cooled Strimmer engine, I could start it, let it idle while i put the wheelhouse etc on and not need to rush to get it in the water.
    Anyway, when I bought it back, it was looking pretty sorry. Lots of bits were either damaged or missing.
    I have removed the 22cc petrol engine and will be converting it to brushless and lipo power. Before then though, I have lots of bits to either make or repair.
    More pictures will follow, when I get it back down from the loft in the new year.
