The more I look at this bike, the stranger it looks. It's basically a bitsa. If it's really a TR6 it's 60-62 in an earlier frame and of course it has a later top end.
And what about that fender? Right off a 58-59 road bike, not a TR6. And why an oil pressure gauge and a tell tale OPRV?
What I'm getting at is that it's just a little too much dough for bike with questionable parentage. However, it's LA, so he'll likely get it, go figure.
But it got my wheels a-turnin'. I have a '63 frame, a '69 motor and bits in the storage shed......all originally owned by Steve Mcqueen. For reals...
Cheers,
Bill

Yes, no doubt it is a bitsa with the engine setup you named. Now, it runs which is a major bonus and it looks good. However, I guess the seller is banking on the alleged Bud Ekins involvement to warrant his asking price wink
