Welcome to the forum

Nice score! More than likely, it has a GY6 engine (pics will confirm) & parts are plentiful & easy to find...

You should find all the help you need here, just be patient

Fabroman above is right it will have gy6 engine I was going to say same thing, they use them engines in mopeds over here in the U.k and in quads and buggys.
Nice buggy for what you paid for it, worth that with no engine in it haha, nice find good luck on your build buddy.

Welcome! Great score for $100
Be ready to spend approx $500 or less hopefully on this restore.
Post more pics of engine with different angles so we can helps assess what might be missing.
Also give a shot of the front so I can tell what brand it is. Look for I.d. markings and such.

Edit: I suspect it might be a hammer head twister
