Every racing is subject of regs and rules so that fair play can exist and is fun to watch...

RE 650 racing class apparently already exists...

Thanks for posting!  I wasn't aware this series exists.  I watch a huge amount of air cooled moto racing on YouTube, so this is right up my alley.  Thumbs up, Derotttone.

Here's the comment from that affordable $12K Ariel ad:
Comment
This bike was my fathers.  It has not been started in over ten years but was in running order.
My father knew everything about vintage bikes but unfortunately I know comparatively little.
It is a wonderful keepsake but I cannot keep it forever.  It should be brought back to life and enjoyed by someone again.
I do not know anything about the history of this bike only that my father was careful when he selected a bike to own and restore.  As you can tell from the photos this bike is only partly restored.
There are a few spare bits and pieces that go with the bike as well.
I inserted the numbers on the odometer but of course have no idea how far it has travelled. Whatever work my father did to the motor it would only have a few miles on it as he never took it out of the street.


So "Show me the MONEY!", at least $12K's worth...although I know nothing about it...

The moral of the story is to sell on all your "treasures" before you shuffle off as the offspring generally neither want nor care about them. If you want to see your labor appreciated, you'll have to find that guy yourself.

But if you bought his bike via eBay for $12K, would you actually receive a 1/6 scale model of an Ariel?   ::)

Ha! Right on the mark I have no kids so I hope to sell off and clear out my motorcycles and related junk / treasures at just the right time when I can no longer use them. Find good homes for it and not let the burden of that to fall to my wife.

I was just trying to be funny. I was recalling that little model jack stand that someone almost bought which was discussed last month in the Tech Tip section. https://forum.classicmotorworks.com/index.php?topic=31673.0

In case that Lotto ticket came in for you - be first in line for 1 of 10 hand built examples... :o 8)

A trifecta of Pre-Unit Bullets: a Red Deluxe 500, a Green Standard 500, and a Black ES 350.
and it's looking like I'll be needing this for the Victors:
Трійка куль Pre-Unit: Red Deluxe 500, Green Standard 500 і Black ES 350.

What to do with leftover Honda VFR1200 engines? Turn them into cash.  ::)
