Re: Wanted. Rack....

Peter Kemp at club spares has them new. You will have to make your own attachments. They are first class reproductions.

Re: Treasure or trash

Johnny, do you happen to have a picture of one that is 100% good? Not sure where this one would have been altered.

Is this part# 3164-52? I think I see it in the Drags catalogue but it is not listed in parts available.

Re: KH alloy head

Good looking engines, even in cast. Have a 57/58 frame, plus hubs and all restored tin. Not likely to find an alloy barrel where I live. Singles are great but a change of scenery is also good.

Re: KH alloy head

LOL. I guess no one is hot rodding twins. If alloy heads can be cast for VHs, barrels, heads and cases could be cast for twins. Before someone tells me to start casting, I won’t be. Crank cases are often cast for rarer Marques like Brough. Alloy engines look twice as good as cast.

KH alloy head

I am so surprised that the good looking alloy KH head for sale on eBay has not sold. If I had a KH I would jump at the chance. What am I missing?
