Here is a picture of what I have left of a Smith Motor Wheel, Engine 14633.

It came off of a small buckboard car called the Smith Flyer. A neighbor of mine bought it for his son. I believe it was about the year of 1918 or 1919. I purchased the motor unit off of it about the year of 1926. I stripped it of the drive wheel, fender and other parts and belted it to a generator to charge batteries. The parts I removed from it got away from me long ago. I now have the engine mounted on a stand and lined up with my collection of other engines.

Since I've been receiving the Gas Engine Magazine I've never seen anything on the Smith Motor Wheel. Would like to hear from anyone that has one.

I have one that I'm in the process or tracking some parts for so is can do a little restoration project. So if your thinking of letting go of anything you have I'd love to grab a few parts. Jrkarting07@yahoo.com

I have one of these motors. I am currently in the process of restoring it to go back onto a Flyer. Mine is a 1916 wheel and by the looks of it had been converted to run shearing machinery or something similar.
