Jim Sherman's stunning 2 HP Foos Jr. spent part of its life as a yard ornament.
When Jim Sherman got the Foos its crankshaft was badly bent (left).
The 2 HP Foos stripped down and in mid-restoration. Jim wanted to wait for winter to start the restoration, but curiosity got the better of him so he started right away. The only non-stock items on the finished engine are the muffler, decals and cart.
A close up of the finished crank shows how well it came out - after three tries!
Details of the 2 HP Foos reveal a quality restoration, despite some problems with the crank.
