Default Marathon barn find

i found this old girl in northern Wisconsin last year, the guy told me that the original engine blew and him and his buddys thought it would be a great idea to get her ruinnin'. well after a couple cases of beer this is what they came up with! he told me that the 40ish hp CCW from a john deere cyclone had plenty of power to do wheelies with two fat guys on it i think i'll take his word on that one. anyway i think i will drop a stock engine in it for now and use it at the shop until the right v twin comes along. the old shop is going up for sale in a week or so! if somebody is looking a big block marathon let me know or shes going on e-bay

Line that belt up and it will be 10 MPH faster. That could be some fun.

Well I haven't done that, but a string on the sparkplug wire of a cushman is a good kill switch.
