    two stroke electric? Do you mean 2 phase electric?

    2 stroke refers to a gas engine that has two cycles. As far as getting one with electric start, you could look for a scooter to take apart.

    To correct the 1st poster,
    A motor is an electrical device that converts electrical energy into motion
    A Engine is a device that converts fuels via chemical reactions into motion.
    You should be able to acquire an electric start 2 stroke engine a lot of places if you don’t mind taking something apart.

    I am taking it for granted that you mean 2 stroke motor not electric. that being said how about a gasoline grass trimmer it is a 2 cycle about 2 hp but no elect start. a lawn mower is between 3 and 8 hp and some do have electric start, the dilemma there is very few are 2 cycle contact a lawn mower repair facility and see if they have any thing to offer. they usually have lots of old things that they hang on to that might work
