    JD if you don't sell and are willing to take $100.00, I'll take it. Is it RW cooled? If so, what condition are the manifolds and risers?

    Thanks,

    Carlos

    The manifolds and carb alone are worth the $300. Yes it is raw water cooled. Always flushed with flush kit and Saltaway regularly.

    Geees, Dude, give him the $ 300.00 man, thats a hell of a deal, we spent about $ 9000.00 on ours a couple of years ago, just the carb is worth the $ 300.00 probably, not including all the other stuff......

    Just my .02

    I should have offered you the $300 and been done with it-my fault!! It is a more than fair deal. If your deal doesn't go through, contact me and I'll pick it up. Sorry for the procrastination and low offer. I'm a little short right now, but I can manage the $300.00. With some recent engine troubles it may come in handy.

    Thanks!!
