That is a Super-Tigre Como, not a Merco!

Thanks, not sure where I got Merco from- got a bunch of engines so can only assume I confused them. I've stopped thinking about it...….

Anyhow, it's surplus to requirements and I am looking to sell it. Thanks for the help in identifying it.

Those are actually pretty good engines. I've got quite a few Super-Tigres, and they've all been excellent quality and reliable.

I might be interested, depending how much you want for it! wink

Just don't expect to retire on the proceeds of the sale Adam! cheeky

Your engine has a broken exhaust port and I don't think that the silencer is original either, not that I'm an expert on Como engines but I doubt that an engine collector would be interested in your engine.

Having said that, as Peter has said, Como/Super Tigre engines have a good reputation so your likely customer will probably be someone looking for a usable two-stroke in the 46-53 range but there's a lot of choice out there so prices for these engines are pretty low..

Thanks everyone. Please make me an offer as it is surplus to requirements. All the best, Adam

Hello Peter, just in case you only have alerts set up on threads rather than email I replied to your message but your email address bounced back......
