Seems like someone decided to drop a XS650 motor into this poor little car. Looks very interesting none the less.

You should go give it a test drive. For research purposes of course. Wonder how it drives...

Man. Way to ruin that car. It's a Berkeley. They come with an Excelsior engine from the factory. They are British, not Italian. Bodies, along with the gauges and such were built in the AC factory.

He's smoking crack on the price.

My garage.

It looks like the dude fixed it right. All ac's are good for is putting different motors in

Harley, yeah. My red one has a CB550 in it.

Plan is to stick a ST1100 V4 in it eventually.

How much do you want for the blue one?
For the old man. When my new shop is done, and I have a bay for a few cars, we're going to build them. New chromoly frame, to sit the bodies on. Have the ST1100 engine sitting here. Contemplating letting the old man use that, and dropping a turbo Busa engine in mine.

They can be had reasonably. I paid $4K for the pair, a 1913 Excelsior engine, a 1936 Velocette engine, and a 36" Pexto sheet metal shear.

Therapy is expensive. Riding is cheap. You decide.
There's an old man that was at Vashon Island this year for the big moto meet who had one with a cb400f engine in it. Not gonna lie, pants got a bit snug.

Ah ya I missed the motor. I was just blown away with the big motor handing out if that horrible hole in an amazing car.
