Hi,
I am having two engines built by Craig Beck Racing and one of them will be for sale. If interested you can influence the spec. I don?t have a price yet but it will have a standard crank and rods ? rods were brought from Burtons 25 plus years ago and have done about 2000 road miles, forged pistons, issue 18 carbs and a choice of two heads.
The head not used will also be for sale and there should be a complete front cover.

I also have another complete engine including carbs etc which I stripped / greased etc for storage ? this was running properly before I stripped it and should only need putting back together ? I was going to get this build by Craig Beck but can be brought as is and of course it can be inspected.

Regards
Steve

Hi, yesterday I took a few photos of the plus 2 engine - it Obviously hasn?t done many miles since it was rebuilt.
QED +60 Pistons and machining marks are still visible in the bores
Cams are JS Motorsport 360 (John Smirthwaite)
Head looks like it has been professionally ported

Don't be silly Paul. What do you think this is, a for sale ad.
