Ok, glad to get a few responses so far. Are these just a guess or "can you show us the proof?" Thanks!  :thumb:

 :iagree:with w-jetter. With the exception of the bellypan and hood, it has a lot of traits of an OMC. However I have no proof.  :dunno:

We'll wait a little while longer and see if anyone else responds to the forum or the newsletter and see what answers we get.

Don't forget to RSVP for the "Road Trip" on May 30th. I've got several all ready and that's great. It will be fun, it's always fun when vintage folks get together and what could be more fun than looking at old sleds?

Also don't forget about the show in St Germain on May 24th. I always see lots of our memebrs there so am looking forward to that also. Happy Mom's Day to all the Vintage Mom's out there...  ;) oh-oh   :o wait, that doesn't sound right ...  :o

The single cylinder, 309cc model was one of two models Sears offered in 69 and/or 70. The other was the HILLARY, it has the 2 cylinder 399cc KOHLER. Still can't confirm who is the manufacturer of either one. :dunno: I just can't help but think OMC had something to do with it.
