I had ran Larry's Solo Twin at a GTG in 2007. One of the few vintage saws that has impressed me.
I tried to find the zippy video of it, but that is no longer around I guess. So here is a youtube solo video I dug up to hear.

I am surprised by the RPM's that saw holds in the wood. Do you know if that saw is stock?

Well I'd say beyond a doubt that one has enough oil in the mix.

I too ran the twin Larry S has .It was not the fastest saw I ever ran however with perhaps the exception of an 090 Stihl  reworked by Ken Dunn it was the most effortless saw under load . A cut though a big log was childs play for it .

 I have knew about a friend having 4 solo twins for awhile and Dennis posted 2 of them new as pulling out of the box earlier on another site.

Just thought I would save the new solo twin pics here too after making sure OK with owner after getting off the phone with him today.   ;)
