HOP UP'ers Swap 2012

You can’t beat to deal directly with the owner of the parts, to work out the best price......HOP UP'ers Swap in Vänersborg Sweden was even this year a success, for the guys who searching parts for old MC, Hot Rods, or Custom Cars. As usual it was a great social event, nice people and for many it’s a lifestyle.

Old Mystic IHC Mogul engines are great....

I read in the local paper yesterday, it was an event, a so called Harvest festival, not far from my place. Called some friends and fired up the Merc-49 and heading out to  the countryside.

It surprised me how popular this event was, but for me the old engines were the most interesting as well many other old pieces of farm equipments. Especially I liked the Old IHC Mogul engine for farm work from 1916. It is a Hopper-cooled oil engine 2½ HP, Speed 500 rpm. It was used for different small work around the farm.
