The Saito twin that never was

Saito made a .60 twin that was for some reason an anomaly in that it has a wedge design head. It ran very well but not really exceptional in the power department like we are used to with the Saito hemi headed engines.

I have often wondered why they didn't make a twin based on the .30S cylinders or even the .30 open rocker cylinders. All the other Saito twins had the hemi design heads. They did a 3 cylinder radial with the .30S parts.

It would be fun to do a one off with a bar stock crankcase but the .30S is getting a bit hard to find now and parts are no longer available it seems.
