    Joat shames on ya, times are hard now days and you just used half a page to say a few words, shames on ya,hehe

    I know China makes just about everything sold in the USA but that don't mean I'm gonna sell it for em. I will if I have no other choice but long as I got an option what goes outta here hopefully won't say Made in China. Dealing with Zama is bad enuff. Maybe I'll send those folks overthere a note, Build It And They Will Come, Come Right Rack,LOL

    I admit its probly a losing battle but I tant gonna to be happy about it, thats for sure,:cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

    My book says the 1960 Jo-Bu D94 Tiger at 23lbs[10.5 kg] with 18" b/c included , 93cc,4.8 hp and all position Tillotson carb.Then the more powerfull 1964 Tiger S at 5.5 hp.
    Yes you are correct about the Canadian connection before 1967. I did some tree removal for a local retired Norwegian doctor last summer, and he told me a story about when he first moved to Canada in the early 1960's he landed in Montreal and spent some time there in medical school.One day he came upon some Italians who were trying to cut down a tree in front of their restaurant. They had a Jo-Bu Tiger. He could see they couldn't get it started and they had no idea how to use it, he joked to them that Italy has no trees and Italians shouldn't be running chainsaws. He offered to cut the tree down for them seeing he had experience running them in Norway on his fathers farm. The tree came down with no problems and for payment the Italians gave him the saw! Business was good again for the restaurant with the tree gone and their sign was in full view.
    I wasn't sure if the doctor was telling the truth or not, until he brought the Jo-Bu Tiger outside from his garage,still like brand new with a Jo-Bu authorized Montreal dealer sticker on the top cover.:)

    Well not really sure. I tried to stir the boy in the right direction and he up and took off. I figure he's in prison somewhere in the country. Probably Bubba's boy now, I say oh well,haha
