The Saito twin that never was
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
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.
Hang time does not apply to ceiling fans, light fixtures, overhead door tracks or basketball nets!
