Things are coming into places as I’ve recently acquired a 6.5HP Fujihama Gas Engine for my motorized trike project. Gone are my pedal driven trikes, now is the time for much more power or acceleration without the need of a downhill. I may have now the option to place a foot assisted brake like a guitar pedal order on my foot rest as it may look much gnarlier. 😛
There’s a funny story behind this engine. Both me and my trike builder Bryan was on a motorcycle surplus store that day waiting for our order for a surplus engine, when the salesman said that all their engine on their warehouse has no magneto, and that we have to wait another week for their new surplus deliveries.
Frustrated, we have no choice but to return to Brare Custom Trike’s warehouse emptyhanded. Suddenly, Bryan thought of his friend from just two blocks away, he told me he saw this engine last week and was asking his friend if he’s gonna sell it, his friend who were having second thought says “maybe”.
Without wasting a moment, we went there and Bryan asked again his friend about the engine. His friend finally agrees and sold it to me. Bryan and me went back at the warehouse with a big grin on my face! 😆
