Is that a REAL ad ?

I would garb that if I could.

$35 is cheap for any complete DC carb.
The guys at Chopcult ? I thought they knew ther sh*t ?

Someone should talk to the uy who has it. There might be more where that came from.

1969 Harley Davidson XL Sportster - FULLY RESTORED!! - $5950

Owner took it to the dealer to get the oil changed; $132... They put different oil in the primary and engine, which is eventually going to mix, but I guess the dealer knows best... And that $669 carb rebuild had better be something really special.
This immaculate bike was fully restored both mechanically and cosmetically by The Harley Dealers in Winchester and Triangle Virginia. No local guy in his shed level restoration, but certified Harley Davidson dealer service department restoration. No expense was spared.

NAYYY...

"While cleaning the shop I found my old saddlebags and a brand new Ironhead Tool Kit was in one of them. This is like knew. V-twin still sells old tools like this but they no longer have it as a kit. The last catalog listing I could find listed this set at $85. Along with the other stuff I found this may cost me $70 to ship so I am starting the bidding at $75. Besides the tool kit you will receive 1) A stand for an Ironhead motor 2) points cover and gasket 3) Compression tester 4) Timing with running gadget 5)Timing Light 6)34742-71 Filler Cap”

This one includes the ultra rare Factory Option expanded metal sprocket cover...

At least the title is clean.

It never ceases to amaze me the lengths guys will go to to completely screw up a fine motorcycle.....
And then have the nerve to ask more than a stock running bike can be bought for. ++++
