Very nice restoration !
The video says 1905 Roberts ?
E.W.Roberts established his company in 1906
in Clyde,Ohio,He moved to a bigger and better
factory in 1909 located in Sandusky Ohio.
The engine in video has Sandusky address making the engine not older than 1909, without detailed photos it seems that a much closer manufacturing date would be late 1909 or 1910.
Possible to post some detailed photos ? or click on my name at left and email to me I'll post them here ?
Good Stuff, appreciate the video

Very nice engine, the one I restored a few years back looks very similar and was a 1910. It belongs to a mullins launch we also have.
