I think he's dreaming on the price, but you don't see one of these every day. He has apparently been trying to sell it for quite some time.

Yup. I kind of like the looks and oddity of this, but I'd have to win big in the Lotto before considering spending that kind of cash on something that rough!

The real red flag is the missing carb, allowing and rain water right into the engine, making likely at least seized if not junk.

Engine either by itself or in a truck with no hood with the carb or the manifold exposed to the weather is a pet peave of mine. I can't believe how many times I've looked at a Craig's list or Ebay ad and seen that. :roll: Usually says "Ran when parked."

Re: 1949 KB6 tandem?

Really what dose it take to stuff a rag in the manifold ? By the way anyone got a 308 manifold for sale ?
