Now, if you want to quote me or talk about a certain picture, don't quote them all!

Interesting adapter plate there--looks to be cut from a VW transmission, therefore the starter mount. I think you'd end up hitting oil if you tried to remove enough transmission to clear a starter. Motor looks like a stockish single carb 40 horse, and it should kick easier than a /2, as they had minimal compression (7.5ish).
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.
