Interesting email I got

Hi Greg

I have two sets of oversized pistons. Both of them have been used, but only very briefly. One pair of pistons are 82mm which gives a capacity of 760cc's. The other pair are 87mm and give a capacity of 860cc's. Both are in excellent condition and come with piston rings and pins. The 87mm pistons are on an engine that has been modified, therefore, to take the larger pistons new oversized liners were inserted into the barrel. Also, the crank cases had to be bored to accept the larger liners and a pair of high performance conrods were manufactured for this engine. Also, the cylinder heads on this engine have been gas flowed. All of this is available, although I do not know how much it would cost so far as postage is concerned. I see from your email address that you are in Australia. Where abouts are you?

I will try and take some photographs and email them to you when I get a minute.

Regards
Bobs
