    No idea if they're still in stock but Goldblatt's is selling them for 59.95 !!
    And they're "completely inspected and OK'd ! "

    Well, you could pick up the phone and call GA. 1181 and see if they still have any.

    Was thinking more of this ride, but with flat heads. Come to think of it, that motor looks better than the flat heads..got one of thos collecting dust? Is that a 60's sportster engine?

    That is one of Steve Hatcher's bikes. It's a 1965 XLCH motor.

    best bet would be any engine out of ww 2 fighters . If you putt away 40 to 50 of them you dam well could retire on what they bring in NOS shape. Any of the Japan Zero / german fighters about the same thing today .

    If you're going to go back in time and change things up, there are a heck of a lot of easier ways to fund your retirement without buying/storing/selling huge engines... I mean, yeah, they're cool and all, but what the heck. Buy the whole damn plane if you're willing to rent a warehouse for decades too.

    TW has 70 miles on it. My friend races at bonneville, and his crew made him buy it for a pit bike, but then it never got used. He sold it to me so cheap I couldn't refuse it.

    I decided about 6 months ago that I want a TW200 to do AZ, NM, & UT BDRs on. My DR200 sucks when I find sand and I end up in the sand. :lol3
