This is my son, Michael Haschel Jr., and his 1928 1-3/4 HP Nelson Bros. He already tinkers with it daily! For only being 2 years old he enjoys every moment with this engine as well as taking it to the Florida Flywheelers Park. The other photo is our 3-year-old, Brianna, and her 1930 Economy 1-1/2 to 2 HP. She just needed a little help to get it started. Thanks a lot for the publication of GEM, the family enjoys it as much as I do.
