Need an engine for a hair brained scheme...
« on: Oct 13, 2018, 23:37:17 »
Looking for a cheap motor for a project. Preferably a twin four stroke over 500cc, but open to just about anything that's highway capable. Must be chain drive. The closer to Pittsburgh the better.

Let me know if you have something under the work bench or out in the shed you'd be willing to part with.

Thanks all,
Mike

Don't have anything to sell but interested in what your going to do. Been a while, been busy powder-coating the entire universe?   8)

No powder coating here lol...

Ended up with two piles I plan on doing SOMETHING with though.

How's a T500 street tracker with 80s Ninja suspension and a full hardtail GS650 I4 chopper sound?

I bought a house, started a new career, grown up bs, blah blah... So all I've really done is stock shelves with cool to me crap that nobody else wanted.

Finally at a point where I can dive into one of these (the T500 first) here soon though.

OK, we've all pulled up chairs and have drinks and popcorn ready and waiting, get to work!   ;D
