Not sure how you "jet it" with no spark.

But you gotta love those really quite Ironheads.

Probably cannot get spark because it needs a battery.

It’s from Lon Giland. The laws of physics are different out there.

I liked it when the coeds from LI would come way over to the bars up on Rt. 23 in Butler, NJ looking for guys who lived in log cabins that they heated with a wood stove. Still have that same stove and some good memories.

A nice looking death trap, with a way too high asking price.
