Introducing Justin Seagull

Justin arrived as a gift, and what a gift, actually older than the bringer of the gift, as by my count Justin Seagull will now be all of fifty one years (51) old!

Justin Seagull has a brand name its a Century 40, thats a 4hp job with a 100cc two stroke motor.
its SLL stamp on the engine places it in the years 1960 to 1961 and seems to be number 94 of that series.

Justin Seagull is quite rare in that he seems to be complete, he is not a runner, in fact the pinion in the ger box was seized, now removed the engine can be turned over by hand,sounds like it has decent compression too!

Justin Seagull will be my next restoration.

How hard will that be, watch this space to find out!
