They were great motors. The 5 is not roar legal if that matters to you. I think rods are still available but not 100% sure as I never had to replace the rod in mine so not sure which one it uses. P/S sets are going to be tough unless a more current model fits but it's long lasting and can always be pinched. Should run pretty close to that Picco.

Just pulled mine out of storage! These were great engines, lots of rpm.
