Pair of Northwest hobbyists stand tall in old iron hobby

6 HP Ellis
When Andy bought this 6 hp Ellis at a Spokane, Wash., auction, the piece was a true basket case. The 2-cycle engine (4-1/2-by-4-1/2-inch bore and stroke) has its original fuel tank and flywheel (note the flywheel’s unique finger grips). The engine runs in either direction; it was built by Ellis Engine Co., Detroit, between 1910 and 1915.
