If Im not mistaken, thats a Curtis V-twin in the background. Another beautiful engine. And theres a Henderson 4 banger just down from there. I spent the whole afternoon there today. Its well worth the trip.

Ive always had a soft spot in my heart for these:




Rolls Royce Merlin

Can be used as a motorcycle engine.
