A typical rusty lawnmower, which the engine could be salvaged from, fixed and repaired. Lawnmower engines are very reliable, and easy to repair and get working.
A visit to your local scrap yard would be a good idea. You can obtain the parts required from old bicycles, lawnmowers, prams, motorcycles, mopeds etc. Don't be too worried if sizes are too big or small. Adjustments can always be made to get a component/part to fit.

Parts such as nuts, bolts, screws and some metal tubing can be bought or taken from old parts and machines.
