Wow!

That is a screaming fire sale deal!

https://phoenix.craigslist.org/wvl/m...157637162.html

Not sure how it fits into today's rules though?
Is it a runner of a museum piece? I don't see any mention of spares....
Looks like it is missing ignition stuff and the fuel feed is awful small?

At that price, I may just go get it. Im tinking $4K would get it. I have some stock length chassis I could cram it in just to ride wheelies around town. Onboard starter makes it easier. It will cost just as much to go to Disneyland (if it was open) for a few days, and i would have much more fun on this.

that's kind of interesting a v-twin motor on an automotive engine stand.
