Found couple of 450s (one racer) and bunches of engines parts for $400. Southern Maine. Anyone seen this stuff yet? Worth a trip?

went to look at em. A late 60s racer, 450, last raced 10 years ago. And 4 engines. Owned by a racer, Al Delaney. Anyone remember him? He raced in the 60s, 70s and 80s. Has a sidecar rig too, Colin Seeley frame, used to run a Matchless G50. Nice looking rig (not for sale) now with a hot Triumph. He also has a Suzuki rotary.

It needs cleaning, but looks usuable. has a great front brake. Bigger than stock, and all drilled for venting. "rear sets" are pretty simple affairs, welded directly to frame. Looks as though all the misc tabs ahve been removed. Nice set of Konis, and a flat straight bar on the trees. Early Keihin carbs, I think. good wheels.

i've also heard his name kicked around, jd, you could try asking about him on the cra board. 400 for a racer is a killer deal!

I got em, and sold the racer to Matt. He advertised it for sale here a while ago, but hes put on tires, clipons, etc. and now wants about a g for it. If you're still interested I'll get you his no. He got like 4 engines with it. I kept the street bike. Anyone interested in picking it up (in parts) for free, come get it.

free, free, free......

man i want a proper 500gp bike. got to bring some more hp to the table. i guess i'll have to wait till i get out of school and have a job before i can justify spending a g, but i still think that is a good deal (four motors and all).

is that matt who does the glass work? if so, props out to him for the fairing that aaron runs, it's a beauty! also i need to get another one of his cb350 bellypans, mine is sorta f-ed!

tex

p.s.- yeah, what's up with the street bike? any pics?

No, Matt here in portland town, Matt the band player in King Memphis, also shoots photos, remember the gay photo of Aaron with his chest heaving and his thumbs in his pants?

Anyway, the 450 is in the yard collecting snow. Engine is in some pieces awaiting re-build. Needs to be put together, front disk is fucked, etc. a POS. But it's all free. I could probably get Matt to give me back a couple of the engines too.

Huh, Matt? He was here a feew times. also has a coooool 175 early Honda for sale. And he has a Dick Mann prepared Bsa DBD Race bike that he just rides around town . . .

Yo Scott and gang. I still have the bike. Got it running and started sorting out the electric, but stopped midway. It runs really well and the electric just needs to be tweaked ever so slightly to get it ready for racing. It needs a seat, but other than that she is ready to go. Brand new, never ridden race tires. Are you still interested? It does not look like I will be racing any time soon. Sigh.

Did you get my email, Matt? It didn't say much, just wanted to make sure you have it for possible future business deals. :)
