All the refs I found suggest a 200cc petrol generator...might be looking at the wrong thing though!

If memory serves, they were just shy of 600cc. Something like 579. But, only good for about 10 horse as I recall. And I might guess parts would now be a challenge as they've not been built for many years. However they do make a sweet looking bike engine. And undoubtedly a sweet sounding one as well.
Apparently one showed up at the 2011 Big Knock, which is where these pics originated.

Thanks guys, yeah I found some stuff on the forum too - 479cc and 9 or 10 hp - but runs backwards! Hence the elegant solution your trike builder came up with. Actually I was looking for an engine to modify a lot, so haven't given up on this one completely yet.
